Nussbaum is a Baller

But it's more official than normal: University of Chicago's very own Martha Nussbaum, the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics in the Divinity School, Philosophy and the Law School (with secondary affiliations in Political Science and Classics) has been awarded the 2009 Henry M. Phillips Prize in Jurisprudence, given by the American Philosophical Society in recognition of outstanding lifetime contributions to the field of jurisprudence.

Nussbaum is only the second woman to ever win the award, and only the 22nd overall in the prize's 121 year history.

Congratulations to Prof. Nussbaum, and a hearty thank you for being such a great asset to the intellectual and social climate of the university.
