Thomas Skouteris, associate professor and chair of AUC’s Department of Law, was honored with the Most Inspiring Legal Academic award in the Middle East by The Law magazine. 

The award recognizes Skouteris’s influence in the legal field and in the classroom as well as his unique teaching methods, specifically the use of artificial intelligence in the advancement of legal education.

Expressing his gratitude to AUC and its School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, Skouteris noted, 

“You’ve been the solid ground where my work could take root and grow. This award reflects what we’ve built together, a place where academic rigor meets real-world relevance.”
