August Steinhilber Award

August Steinhilber Award

Outstanding Appellate Brief

This award recognizes outstanding brief writing in an appellate court in a case concerning education law. Any ELA member may nominate a brief, and the selection committee will review briefs proactively. The author(s) need not be ELA member(s). Both amicus curiae briefs and party briefs are eligible. Because ELA is a nonpartisan forum, there will be no bias in favor of or against a particular legal position or party. Appellate briefs filed with the court between July 1 of last year and June 30 of the current year are eligible for nomination. The award is granted on the basis of merit as determined by the selection committee.
