The ALL-SIS Outstanding Article Award has honored section members since 2002 for contributions to the enhancement of academic law librarianship through publishing. To qualify for consideration, articles must be:
- published in the year prior to the award,
- in any format,
- in any publication (other than Law Library Journal and AALL Spectrum, because articles in those publications are eligible for a AALL award), and
- about any aspect of academic law librarianship.
Awards are given at the discretion of the committee. No awards were given in 2003 or 2006.
