This is a reminder that the deadline for the American Lawyers Alliance Law-Related Education Teacher of the Year contest is rapidly approaching.  Please encourage your Middle School and High School teachers to apply for this prestigious award.  We would appreciate you encouraging your Middle School Teachers to apply since they are often overlooked when it comes to awards.


The attached brochure explains the purpose of the contest, the application process and the application form.  One Middle School and two High School teachers will be chosen as the ALA LRE 206 Teachers of the Year.  Each winner will be presented a $1500 cash award at the Annual Meeting of the American Lawyers Alliance in San Francisco, California, in early August 2016.  An Additional $500 for hotel and travel expenses will be given to each recipient who attends the Awards Luncheon.


The Application Deadline is March 15, 2016.  Please visit the ALA website and click on “Annual Awards” for information about this award.   If you have any questions or would like further information, please feel free to contact either Kitty O’Reilley at or Anne Santorelli at
