Searching for Innovative Lawyers, Firms
Nominations of lawyers, law firms and other legal professionals who have invented and successfully applied new business practices to the delivery of legal services are being sought for the 2007 InnovAction Awards. Sponsored by the Michigan-based College of Law Practice Management, the goal of the awards is to “seek out and recognize creativity and genuinely new ways of thinking in law practices wherever they may be,” said College President Merrilyn Astin Tarlton. “We know a good deal of innovative thinking is now at work around the world to solve the business challenges faced by law firms in today’s competitive market.”
The award recipients will be selected by a panel of judges in July, with presentation of the awards to occur at the College’s Annual Meeting and Induction Ceremony in Philadelphia in September.
Award entries will be judged on the basis of four primary criteria:
- Absence of precedent.
- Evidence of action.
- Effectiveness of innovation.
- Action took place no more than three years prior to the nomination.
