Best Program (Course) Category
Deadline: May 5, 2016

The following criteria will be used to determine the recipients of the “Awards of Professional Excellence” and “Awards of Outstanding Achievement.” Please address how the project meets each of the criteria. The program (course):
  1. Is useful as an example for other ACLEA members to follow.
  2. Has a subject focus that is well defined, practical and useful, creative, and likely to be appealing to lawyers.
  3. Shows creativity in its design and execution.
  4. Is carefully constructed in its details.
  5. Is marketed skillfully and persuasively.
  6. Enjoyed success at the box office and at the bottom line.

Three Awards Each for Larger and Smaller Organizations

Three awards may be granted to larger organizations, and three to smaller organizations. The subcommittee will divide the entries into two groups, according to organization size.

In each group:
(1) the best entry overall will win the “Award of Professional Excellence”;
(2) the second best entry overall will win an “Award of Outstanding Achievement”; and
(3) a new award winner (an organization that has never won an ACLEA’s Best Program award, or hasn’t won in the past 10 years) will win an “Award of Outstanding Achievement”.

See the “How to Enter Checklist and Rules” for further details.
