August Steinhilber Award

August Steinhilber Award

Outstanding Appellate Brief

Tentative deadline for nominations: August 1, 2021 

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.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING A NOMINATION WILL BE POSTED HERE IN THE NEAR FUTURE.
