AALS women's section seeks life-career nominees

Nominations are sought for the 1st-ever recipient of an award recognizing contributions to women in the academy.
That's the news from the Section on Women in Legal Education of the Association of American Law Schools, for which IntLawGrrls' own Lisa R. Pruitt served as Chair a couple years back. This year's Chair, Missouri-Kansas City Law Professor Nancy Levit (right), writes the following to Section members:
'This year the Section on Women in Legal Education of the AALS  will award, for the first time, a Lifetime Achievement award. The purpose of the 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.'

E-mail your nomination, including a short explanation of how the nominee fits the criteria, to Nancy at levitn@umkc.edu. Deadline is September 7, 2012.
