Call for Nominations for the AALS Section on Women in Legal Education Ruth Bader Ginsburg Lifetime Achievement Award
The AALS Section on Women in Legal Education is pleased to open nominations for its second Lifetime Achievement Award. Last year, the inaugural award honored Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for her remarkable impact and contributions to the Section on Women in Legal Education, the legal academy, and the legal profession.
The purpose of the Ruth Bader Ginsburg 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 by filling out this electronic form by November 8, 2013. Please note that only nominations submitted via the electronic form by the deadline will be accepted.
Please email Dean Cynthia Fountaine, chair of the Lifetime Achievement Award Subcommittee, if you have any questions or difficulty with your online submission.
