This year the AALS Section on Women in Legal Education will award, for the first time, a Lifetime Achievement award. The purpose of the Lifetime Achievement Award is to honor an individual who has had a distinguished career of teaching, service, and scholarship for at least 20 years. The recipient should be someone who has impacted women, the legal community, the academy, and the issues that affect women through mentoring, writing, speaking, activism, and by providing opportunities to others.
The Section is seeking nominations for this most prestigious award. Please submit your nomination, with a short paragraph explanation of how the nominee fits the criteria, to Nancy Levit, Chair of the Section on Women in Legal Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 7, 2012. According to Section bylaws, the Section Officers and Executive Committee will comprise the selection committee.
