The Law Alumni Board at The University of Memphis has named two faculty members of the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law as recipients of its first Teaching Excellence Awards. Professors Robert Banks Jr. and June F. Entman were recognized for their outstanding classroom instruction, development of teaching materials, curricular innovation and student mentoring.

Banks, who joined the law faculty in 1978, teaches civil procedure law, advanced procedure topics and the law of evidence. He is widely regarded as an outstanding classroom instructor and is known for the high standards of preparation and competence he expects of his students. Banks also is respected for the teaching materials he has developed for his civil procedure and evidence courses.

Entman has been a member of the law faculty since 1984. She also teaches civil procedure and evidence, and she jointly authored teaching materials used in these classes. Regarded as an excellent classroom instructor, Entman consistently receives exceptional teaching evaluations from her students.

The Teaching Excellence Awards carry a cash stipend and extend for two years, 2001-2002. They are funded by gifts from U of M Law Alumni Board members.
