post last week, the American Society of International Law welcomes nominees for various ASIL honors:
► Manley O. Hudson Medal, given in recognition of scholarship and achievement in international law.
► Goler T. Butcher Medal, given in recognition of outstanding contributions to the development or effective realization of international human rights law. (As blogreaders well know, IntLawGrrls honors Butcher as a transnational foremother, and one recent medalist, Gay McDougall, is an IntLawGrrls contributor.)
► ASIL Honorary Member, an award given in recognition of a non-U.S. citizen who has rendered distinguished contributions or service in the field of international law.
These honors will be awarded at the Society’s 2013 Annual Meeting, to be held April 3-6 in Washington, D.C. In making its decision, the Honors Committee will include in its consideration nominations made in previous years, and it invites persons who made nominations in previous years to supplement their earlier letters as they believe appropriate.
Questions may be directed to ASIL's Honors Committee via the Office of the Executive Director of the Society, by contacting Veronica Onorevole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nominations should be submitted via the online form available here. Deadline is August 31, 2012.
