Bill Neighbors was honored with the CSU Career Distinction in Law Award on February 26, 2015 at the University Club in Denver. The CSU Career Distinction in Law Award recognizes an outstanding CSU alumnus who has demonstrated compelling and distinguished service to the law profession over the course of a noted career.
He has been an advocate of judicial education and legal professionalism as demonstrated by his long-standing relationship with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy as a teaching team leader and member. He has taught trial advocacy at Harvard, the University of Denver, the universities of Colorado and New Mexico law schools. Neighbors and Justice William H. Erickson have written two books on constitutional criminal law and procedure.
On May 16, 2013, Bill Neighbors, along with former Colorado Gov. Roy Romer and CSU Professor Emeritus Jim Lewis, was inducted into CSU's Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics Inaugural Hall of Fame.
“We feel it is important to honor our alumni and faculty who have made an exceptional impact on society through success in business, education, government service or in their contributions to local communities,” said Gregory Perry, head of the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. “It is with great pleasure that I announce the inaugural Hall of Fame to honor these outstanding individuals for the impact they have had in Colorado and beyond.”
