Maleski Award for Teaching Excellence

The David J. Maleski Award for Teaching Excellence recognizes a faculty member who has proven to be a committed, excellent and innovative teacher within the past two years.

The award honors Georgia State Law’s founding faculty member David Maleski, who had a passion for teaching Torts and died in 1994 of kidney cancer. The award celebrates faculty members who have made innovations in course design or teaching methods and other significant contributions to the promotion of student learning.

Through his award, Maleski’s legacy continues to mentor others and enhance teaching at Georgia State Law. The David J. Maleski Award consists of a stipend of $2,500.
