Robert B. Yegge Excellence in Teaching Award - 2002

In 1967, after moving to Denver from Chicago, Professor Howard Rosenberg began his career as an adjunct professor at the University of Denver College of Law. In 1973, he became professor and director of the Clinical Program, replacing Richard Lamm, who had decided to run for governor. Since then, Rosenberg has taught creditor-debtor, bankruptcy, poverty law, legal profession, decision process, post-trial and procedure and civil process in the College of Law's master's program in judicial administration. Rosenberg was a founding member of the community service organization, Labor's Community Agency, Inc., and the "Thursday Night Bar," later renamed the Metro Volunteer Lawyers, which provides pro bono services to low income recipients. He was appointed by Mayor Federico Peña to the Denver Career Service Board from 1984-1996.
