Levin Center announces Award for Excellence in Oversight Research

The Levin Center at Wayne State University Law School is accepting submissions for the inaugural Levin Center Award for Excellence in Oversight Research, in honor of former U.S. Sen. Carl Levin’s leadership in promoting fact-based, bipartisan oversight investigations.

The award, which carries a $1,000 prize and an invitation to present the paper at Wayne Law, recognizes scholarly papers that examine important oversight issues by legislative bodies at the national, state, tribal, local, or international levels and that contribute to efforts to improve public policy. Complete criteria and submission details can be found at go.wayne.edu/oversightresearch. Submissions for the 2018-19 academic year will be accepted until June 1, 2019.

The Levin Center at Wayne Law promotes constructive research into oversight by legislative bodies. Last year, it hosted a Scholars Roundtable on Congressional Oversight and, in conjunction with the Wayne Law Review, a symposium featuring original research papers on oversight issues. The center has developed an online hub for oversight scholars, assembling relevant materials and research, and an oversight scholars list-serv with more than 100 members.

The Levin Center at Wayne Law is supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Democracy Fund and Wellspring Advisors.
