Andy Klein, a member of the AALS Torts & Compensation Systems Section's Executive Committee, writes:
This is a "second call" for nominations for the 2013 William L. Prosser Award. The award "recognize[s] outstanding contributions of law teachers in scholarship, teaching and service in ... torts and compensation systems ... ." Recent recipients are Richard Posner, Guido Calabresi, Oscar Gray, Dan Dobbs, and Robert Rabin. Past recipients also include luminaries such as Leon Green, Wex Malone, and John Wade.
As my previous announcement explained, any law professor is eligible to nominate another law professor for the award. Nominators can renew past nominations by resubmitting past nominations and materials. Selection of the recipient will be made by members of the Executive Committee of the Torts and Compensation Systems Section, based on the recommendation of a special selection committee. The announcement of the award will be made at the annual AALS meeting in January, 2013.
Nominations, accompanied by a brief supporting statement, should be submitted no later than July 2, 2012. E-mail submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org are preferred. If you would rather mail hard copies of nomination materials, please use the address in the signature line below. If you prefer to mail the nominations, please send them to the address below.
Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks.
