This November, we at IAALS are grateful for our broad network of partners, supporters, friends, and colleagues. Our board of advisors came together virtually last month for an engaging and productive meeting, where we discussed IAALS' current projects and where we can have the most impact moving forward. It would not be possible to advance our critical mission without the valuable contributions and insights from the individuals who make up our board and partners. 

During this season of gratitude, we want to publicly thank them—as well as all of you who share IAALS' vision of a justice system that works for all people—for the support of our work and commitment to our vision.

David Yellen, CEO
November 2021
The nomination window for the 2022 Alli Gerkman Legal Visionary Award, which recognizes innovators who have made significant impacts early in their legal careers toward making the American legal system work better for everyone, is open through December 1. 

The award is designed 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 should be early in their legal careers to be eligible, roughly the first 15 years.
IAALS will review the nominations and select the recipient, which will be presented at our Rebuilding Justice Award Dinner in April. Nominations can be made here
