Now Accepting Nominations for the 2017 NAWL Outstanding Law Student Award

    By: Kelsey Vuillemot on Feb 10, 2017

    The National Association of Women Lawyers ("NAWL") is now accepting nominations for the 2017 "NAWL Outstanding Law Student" Award from all ABA-accredited law schools. 

    Each year, we ask the faculty to identify a third-year law student who meets the below selection criteria. Upon approval by NAWL, the nominated student will be given a certificate of recognition and acknowledged in an issue of the Women Lawyers Journal. 

    We invite you to select one student nominee, female or male, from your current graduating class who best exemplifies the following characteristics: 

    • Contributes to the advancement of women in society
    • Promotes issues and concerns of women in the legal profession
    • Exhibits motivation, tenacity, and enthusiasm
    • Demonstrates high academic achievement
    • Earns your respect and that of your colleagues

    Your nomination should include a brief letter outlining why the student merits selection and a copy of the student's resume, including the nominee's permanent mailing address. Nominations missing one or more of these components may not be considered. 

    Nominations must be received no later than May 15, 2017. Nominations received after that date will not be entitled to the benefits associated with this award. Only one student per law school may be nominated. Multiple submissions will result in NAWL's arbitrary selection of one.

    Please contact Kelsey Vuillemot at kvuillemot@nawl.org with any questions.
