Sarah Herring Sorin, namesake of an esteemed award given by the Arizona Women Lawyers Association.

Today, I invite you to think about legal leaders, and maybe even to nominate one for a prestigious award—by September 30.

The Arizona Women Lawyers Association (disclosure: I’m a member) is seeking nominations for its Sarah Herring Sorin award.  Every year, AWLA recognizes one of its own members who has demonstrated support and encouragement for the advancement of women in the legal profession. Because the AWLA has been around for decades and has more than 500 members, it’s quite possible you know a member.

As the AWLA says: “The recipient may not be a current regular member of the AWLA State Board of Directors but may be a former member of the Board. Please submit your nomination on or before September 30, 2015 to AWLA at awla.execadmin@gmail.com
