legal awards

Summary: There are 408 listings of different awards and prizes listed by the association that attorneys and law students can win.

See the original article titled Legal Awards Available To Attorneys And Law Students for the full list.


There are a number of different awards that law students and attorneys are eligible for. The listing provides the name of the award, the association giving the award, their phone number and fax number, and the website and email to apply to. Some awards are for other countries, but the majority are for those in the United States.

Not everyone will be eligible for all awards. For instance, the Anne Wells Branscomb Award given by George Washington School of Law is awarded to the member of the graduating class with the highest average grade for the entire course of the evening division in a J.D. degree.

For some awards, more than one person will earn the title. The 2013 recipient for the Award for Achievement in Environmental Law, Policy and Management was George P. Shultz and Thomas F. Steyer. The award is given by the Environmental Law Institute.
