John Jeffries Receives UVA Thomas Jefferson Award
UVA School of Law professor John C. Jeffries Jr. received the Thomas Jefferson Award for excellence in scholarship at UVA’s annual Fall Convocation.
Professor Jeffries’ scholarly contributions include showing that limiting the personal monetary liability of government officials made the courts more willing to announce new constitutional rights, thus changing the thinking on how constitutional rights evolve. He also changed thinking about the burden-of-proof issues in criminal cases and what questions must be answered before criminal punishment may be constitutionally imposed.
