Justin D. Levinson

Justin Levinson is an instructor at the William S. Richardson School of Law at UH Manoa.

Levinson is a superlative teacher who succeeds through a unique blend of enthusiasm and rigor, deep and broad knowledge and a remarkable empathy and understanding of a diverse range of people.

His colleagues describe him as “a renowned scholar, a committed teacher with uncompromising standards, and a consummate role model for faculty and students.”

Levinson is considered to be teaching courses from the most difficult curriculum in the law school, seamlessly blending theory and practice while consistently receiving high rankings from his students. He takes teaching very seriously, pioneers new courses and continually adjusts and adapts to create new pedagogical practices for long standing courses.

In 2008, he founded the Culture and Jury Project, an interdisciplinary and international research collaboration devoted to facilitating the study of human decision-making in the law.

The Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching is awarded by the Board of Regents as tribute to faculty members who exhibit an extraordinary level of subject mastery and scholarship, teaching effectiveness and creativity and personal values that benefit students.
