Amin Sadri (2017 LLM, 2016 JD) received the 2016-2017 Eliza Ellison Prize, which recognizes a graduating student who has shown special initiative in leading law and religion studies within and beyond the classroom. Along with the John and Gertie Witte Prize, it is the most significant honor given by the Center for the Study of Law and Religion.

The award was created in 2009 to honor Eliza Ellison, the Center's longtime associate director who also served as director of publications. The award is made possible by faculty, staff, current students, alumni, and friends of the Center.

Sadri was active in the Center's Restoring Religious Freedom Project. Under the direction of Mark Goldfeder, Sadri worked on amicus briefs for U.S. Supreme Court cases as well as cases before lower courts. In the summer of 2016, he served as a foreign law clerk for the Supreme Court of Israel, researching issues of interest to justices, drawing from European and American law.
