Award of Legal Merit

The Award Of Legal Merit recognizes the outstanding contribution of an Idaho law graduate whose career exemplifies the best in the legal profession. This annual award is determined by a vote of the law faculty and is based on demonstrated standards of integrity, competence, service and leadership through work as a legal practitioner, service to the legal profession, service to the community, or service to business/state/national interests. The award is presented during the College of Law commencement ceremony. Nominations are submitted to the Dean of the College of Law and voted on by the faculty each spring.
