The Global Legal Skills Conference being held in Chicago May 20-22, 2015 includes a Consular Reception and GLS Awards Presentation at the Union League Club of Chicago on Thursday evening, May 21. Nominations are still open for GLS Awards, which can be given in a number of categories:
- Innovative Programs (for example, programs that focus on teaching global legal skills; teaching Legal English or Legal Spanish to non-native speakers; and other innovative programs);
- Scholarship (articles and books that advance the teaching of global legal skills, including new casebooks and texts for lawyers and law students);
- Educational Leadership (schools that recognize the importance of providing services to international students); and
- Support (for companies, law firms, and law schools that give special support for global legal skills).
Nominees need not be present (but it's always nicer if they are). Nominees and winners in past years have come from around the world (United States, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Russia for example).
More information about the GLS conference is available at http://glsc.jmls.edu/2015/.
There is no particular nomination form. To submit a nominee, contact Professor Mark E. Wojcik at The John Marshall Law School [mwojcik at jmls.edu] by May 8, 2015.
