Association of Media & Entertainment Counsel (AMEC) Honors Law Professor

And the only law professor to be so honored is . . . our colleague Nancy Rapoport.  (She of UNLV law school, Enron movie IMDB, and competitive ballroom dancing infamy.)  The Association of Media and Entertainment Counsel, which recognizes the achievements of in-house legal counsel in the entertainment industry, has nominated its 2008 Counsel of the Year awards.  Full list of nominees here.  You have to like that one of the categories is Dealmaker of the Year.  (Last year's winner was not the man who put together all the financing and talent pawns to resurrect Knight Rider, TV's only show this year where the pilot already jumped the shark.)  In the category of Public Service, the nominees are Nancy and Prof. David Sherwyn of Cornell's Hospitality School.  Congratulations to both, and let's hope that this category is not one of the awards they give off-camera at some half-filled hotel ballroom a week before they dole out the jazzy awards and inappropriate political speeches.  Though if so, she's one of the few who could use the ballroom for its intended purpose.  [Alan Childress]
