May 24, 2022

Professor Stephen Wilks is the 2022 recipient of the James T. Barnes Sr. Memorial Faculty Scholar Award. Each year, a full-time faculty member is chosen to receive this award based on scholarship, teaching excellence, and public service.

Professor Wilks' research interests explore themes of governance and regulation within business and transactional spaces. He teaches Cross Border Sales and Financing, Business Organizations, and Secured Transactions in Detroit Mercy Law and Windsor Law’s Canadian and American Dual JD Program.

“I know that he works hard to provide his students with all the tools they need to excel,” noted on nominator.

In addition to managing teaching responsibilities that have him instructing almost 100 students, Professor Wilks has published four articles and two book chapters over the past two years; and is working on two more manuscripts he plans to complete this summer.

He was also chosen for this award because of service to the School of Law and the wider University community on many committees that benefit all.
