Best Papers

Authors must submit papers on time and papers are evaluated by the conference planning committee on originality, quality, analysis, usefulness, relevance, and format. Each author whose paper is once selected is presented with a certificate of recognition at the CLE conference and receives a complimentary Section publication as a token of appreciation for his/her outstanding submission.

The ABA Fund for Justice and Education

The Section recognizes authors of the “Best Papers” prepared for each major CLE conference. Congratulations to our authors.
