Last Friday, IAALS opened nominations for the 2022 Alli Gerkman Legal Visionary Award, designed to encourage and showcase innovators, risk takers, visionaries, and emerging leaders who are early in their legal careers. Nominations will be accepted through December 1.

We’ve been delighted to partner with the inaugural recipient, Professor Anna Carpenter, over this past year. You can read a recent Q&A with her here.

More information about the award is available here, including the selection process and guidelines to submit a nomination. We hope you’ll help us spread the word—and help nominate emerging leaders in our profession.
