2010 NAWL Outstanding Law Student Award

The National Association of Women Lawyers invites 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 motivations, tenacity and enthusiasm
* Demonstrates high academic achievement
* Earns your respect and that of your colleagues

The student you select will be recognized in the Women Lawyers Journal as a recipient of the 2010 Outstanding Student Award and will receive a one-year complimentary membership in NAWL. Because we honor over 100 law students annually, only one student per law school may be nominated. Multiple submissions will result in our arbitrary selection of one.

Your nomination should include a brief letter by your or your designee outlining why the student merits selection, and a copy of the student's resume, including the nominee's permanent mailing address for future membership mailings.

Nominations must be received no later than May 14, 2010. Nominations received after that date will not be entitled to the benefits associated with this award.

Please return your selection by mail, e-mail or fax to:
