In this year’s Prytanean lecture, Professor Andrea Roth will discuss the ways in which COVID-19 has affected criminal trials: the challenges, opportunities, and lessons for the future.
Each year, the Prytanean Society awards $25,000 to a nontenured woman faculty member who is selected on the basis of distinguished teaching, scholarly achievement, and success as a role model for students. The award recipients are among the very best of Berkeley professors in a variety of fields. Founded in 1900 at UC Berkeley, the Prytanean Society is the oldest women’s honor society in the United States.
Professor Roth is the 2017 Prytanean Faculty Enrichment Award recipient, a 2019 recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award, and an expert on the topic of law and evidence.
