Justin Miller Award Nominations

March 27, 2007Duke Law News

Dear Students,

Nominations for the annual Justin Miller Awards for graduating students are due Monday, April 16, at 5 p.m.. Last year we received more than 100 nominations for 50+ students, which is a testament to the character and commitment our students and this community. Because these awards are based solely on peer nominations, receiving a Justin Miller is a particular honor, so please take a few moments to consider who you would like to nominate.
Please submit hard copy nominations to the Office of Student Affairs (Room 2007).

Winners will be announced at the Graduation Gala at the American Tobacco Campus Wednesday, May 9. Thank you for your participation.
