IAALS—the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System—has launched a new Legal Visionary Award and is accepting nominations through December 1. The Alli Gerkman Legal Visionary Award recognizes an innovator who has made significant impacts early in his or her career toward making the American legal system work better for everyone who needs it and everyone who is a part of it. The purpose is to encourage and showcase innovators, risk takers, visionaries, and emerging leaders who bring a different perspective and a reform-minded approach to the improvement of our legal system. Candidates must be in the first 15 years of their legal career to be eligible.
So much good work is being done across the legal profession and we can’t wait to highlight it.
