Distinguished Alumni Awards

Created by the Volume 89 Board of Editors, the Distinguished Alumni Awards are granted each year by the current Board of Editors at the annual spring banquet. We look to Law Review alumni to nominate other alumni who have made extraordinary contributions to the profession and the greater good of society. Please tell us about colleagues who should be considered for an award this year by nominating them by mail or online.

Nominations

The Minnesota Law Review Board and Staff requests nominations by email each year, usually in January or February.

Nominations should be brief, but should contain:

Your name
Nominee’s name
Volumes the nominee participated in publishing
No more than 100 words why you believe the nominee should be honored

 

Nominations are preferred through email, but may alternatively be mailed to:

Minnesota Law Review
University of Minnesota Law School
Attn: Kate Baxter-Kauf and Jennifer Gover Bannon
229 19th Avenue South
Minneapolis, MN 55455
