Harvard Law School Professor Jeannie Suk ’02 received the Charles Fried Intellectual Diversity Award from the Harvard Federalist Society in April.

The award is bestowed upon a faculty member who has furthered the cause of intellectual diversity and free and open debate at Harvard Law School, both inside and outside of the classroom, regardless of that professor’s ideological leanings or favored theories of jurisprudence.

The award was given for the first time in 2005 to Beneficial Professor of Law Charles Fried, for whom it was subsequently named. The Charles Fried Intellectual Diversity Award has been awarded every year since, except for in 2007, in which the Federalist Society conferred a different award to Judge Laurence Silberman.

A specialist in criminal law and family law, Suk is the author of “At Home in the Law: How the Domestic Violence Revolution is Transforming Privacy” (Yale, 2009), which received the Herbert Jacob Prize by the Law and Society Association. She also researches and teaches in the areas of art and entertainment law, and explores legal issues pertaining to the performing arts.
