Pro Bono Honor Roll
It’s time to yet again name one faculty member, one staff member, and one student per school for the second annual AALS Pro Bono Honor Roll, which celebrates the exceptional work of individuals engaging in, expanding, and/or supporting their law school community in providing pro bono legal services. We understand that there are so many deserving people who serve year in and year out without acknowledgement. The Pro Bono Honor Roll is an easy annual way for you to recognize them for their contributions and lift them up for making a difference in our law schools and communities. For purposes of this award, pro bono is defined as work that is primarily legal in nature, supervised by a licensed attorney (for law students), not for pay or academic credit, and of service to underserved individuals, groups, or those with barriers to access to justice. We welcome new or former recipients from the 2022 Pro Bono Honor Roll. You may submit a faculty, student, and staff person from your law school by September 6th, 2023, using this form. Recipients will receive an electronic certificate, and their names will be publicized through the AALS electronic newsletter, website, and at the annual conference. If you have any questions about the Pro Bono Honor Roll, please reach out to section secretary Cate Carbonaro at [email protected].
We are also seeking nominations for outstanding colleagues worthy of special recognition through three awards sponsored by our section:
1) a Lifetime Achievement Award,
2) an Access to Justice Award, and
3) an Emerging Leader Award.
Please read more about our Section awards here. The deadline to submit nominees for these awards is September 15, 2023. Please spread the word and nominate a worthy colleague!
