On May 3rd, 2017, LLAW president Elana Olson presented the fourth LLAW Distinguished Service Award (DSA) to Carol Bannen of Reinhart, Boerner, VanDueren, S.C. The nomination was a collaborative effort from Debbie Boyden, Emily Gellings, Katie Kvien, Laura La Rose, and Michelle Wollmann who cited Carol for her outstanding chapter and professional leadership, speaking engagements and articles. The group summed up Carol's contributions as follows:

"Carol is a founding member of LLAW and has not slowed in her commitment since those early days. She truly exemplifies what it means to be a dedicated servant to LLAW, law librarianship, and the greater legal and librarian communities."


Participating on the 2017 selection committee were Mary Koshollek and Bev Butula. A list of all LLAW DSA award winners appears below:
