Professor Jorge Esquirol, a founding faculty member of the College of Law, has been recognized as an FIU Top Scholar in the Notable Academic Appointments category by FIU Provost and Executive Vice-President Kenneth G. Furton and the FIU Selection Committee. He was awarded the Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Law at the University of Trento, Italy.

The Fulbright Distinguished Chair program is considered the most prestigious of all Fulbright awards. Only 40 individuals are selected each year as a Fulbright Distinguished Chair, only three of them specifically designated in law.

The Fulbright website describes recipients of this award as “eminent scholars [who] have a significant publication and teaching record.”  As part of his Fulbright activities in Trento in the spring, Professoer Esquirol will be teaching “Law and Politics in Latin America,” a seminar which he offers annually at FIU Law.
