Happy New Year. The Public Service Committee is pleased to announce three new Section awards for Section members for service in competition and consumer protection law: for distinguished service to the Section; for public service; and for innovative service by a young lawyer. For those interested in all the gory details, here is a link to the forms that we used to get ABA authority to establish the awards. We intend to seek nominations for all three awards later this year, from November 1 through December 15, 2020.
To kick things off and to celebrate the contributions of our young lawyer members, however, we would like to give out a young lawyer award at the upcoming Spring Meeting. If you know of someone who deserves the recognition, please tell us about him or her by downloading and completing the linked nomination form, and sending it back to us by January 31, 2020. Of course, we also welcome any and all comments and suggestions about the awards in general.
