Award Jury


The jury will select one or more recipients every year for the best article for the AALL Spectrum Article of the Year Award, or no recipient if it deems none of the nominees sufficiently qualified, and will submit the winning recipient’s name(s) to the Awards Committee. *Jury members should not have published an article or have plans to publish an article within the publication the year prior through the current year to avoid having to recuse yourself from voting.


Jury members will work during the months of January and February to review all AALL Spectrum articles from the previous year. The deadline to complete the online Award Recipient Form is April 15, 2023.  


Membership on the jury will be for one year.


The jury will consist of a chair, vice chair, five members, and a non-voting Executive Board and staff liaison.
