New Award Recognizing Health Law-Related Service to the Community

Nominate a Colleague for New Award Recognizing Health Law-Related Service to the Community

The AALS Section on Law, Medicine and Health Care created a new award in 2014 to recognize outstanding contributions of law teachers in the service of health law.  

The award is designed to recognize a wide variety of community service activities, including: pro bono litigation, legislative advocacy, leading or consulting on public initiatives, and other public or private projects.  The service may be local, regional, national or international in scope.  It is not the purpose of the award to recognize teaching, scholarship or service other than community service (such as service to the AALS, academic institutions, or to academia).

Nominators and nominees must be Section members.  Please nominate a colleague (or yourself) for this award by September 15 using this Nomination Form

The award winner will be selected by the 2015 Section Executive Committee, listed here, and acknowledged at the 2016 AALS Annual Meeting.  Please contact Elizabeth Pendo,, if you have any questions.
