Read the nomination text for both awards below.
Nomination text: Prof. Adrian Walters is a brilliant man who cares deeply about not only the success of his students but also actually getting to know them. He had made an effort to memorize all of our names before our very first class with him. Professor Walters also regularly updates his blog about any type of Contracts or legal issue he is interested in at the moment and encouraged his students to read it when it pertained to their learning. He facilitated the learning process inside and outside of the classroom and kept Contracts as fun and interesting as it could possibly get.
