We all have extraordinary coworkers and colleagues. Do you know somebody who deserves an award for their service to LLAW or law librarianship? Fill out and submit the LLAW Award nomination form (Microsoft Word) to tell us who you would like to honor with the LLAW Distinguished Service Award. Contact Mary Koshollek for more information.


On April 30th, LLAW President Lisa Winkler presented the second LLAW Distinguished Service Award (DSA) to Bev Butula of Davis and Kuelthau. Vicky Coulter submitted the nomination and cited Bev for her awards and outstanding chapter and professional contributions as follows:

“Although she is humble and her numerous activities may be easily overlooked, Bev’s leadership and work in LLAW, in the profession, her mentorship, numerous speaking engagements and vast publishing make her an ideal candidate for the award.”

Participating on the 2015 selection committee were Mary Koshollek and Cindy May. Megan O’Brien also served in an advisory role. A list of all LLAW DSA award winners appears below:
