SBA Secretary Samah Abukhodeir and Professor Christine Rickard
In a night where the FIU Law community dressed in their finest attire, and enjoyed a masquerade ball, Professor Christine Rickard was selected as “Professor of the Year” for 2012-13.
She was selected in recognition of her “excellence in teaching” and her “devoted commitment to the students of the Florida International University College of Law.”
“I am very honored and humbled to be the Professor of the Year,” said Rickard. “I love being a professor and this job means so much to me because I get to teach students how to make a difference every day through the law.”
The award was presented by the Student Bar Association at the annual Barristers’ Ball on April 6, at the Eden Roc Renaissance Hotel. Some 400 people were in attendance.
During her speech, Rickard thanked Dean R. Alexander Acosta and Director Marci A. Rosenthal for their support. She especially thanked her students. “This award will always have a special place in my heart because it came from such an amazing group of future lawyers.”
Professor Rickard teaches Florida Law and Procedure for graduating 3L students. She has been teaching Florida Law and Procedure since 2010.
