The Ohio State Bar Association Labor and Employment Law Section Award is presented annually to recognize outstanding scholarship and promote law student interest in the areas of labor, employment and/or employment discrimination law.
The student selected for the award will receive a copy of “Labor and Employment Law Compliance and Litigation,” published by Thomson-West, and a cash award of $500. In the event that the judgment of the law school considers that there is more than one exceptionally worthy student, the school may select a second student to receive an identical award.
A recipient is chosen by his or her law school. The following criteria are applicable to the law school in making its determination:
- Academic achievement in labor, employment and/or employment discrimination law topics;
- A demonstrated interest in the foregoing areas (e.g., an internship, law review/journal paper topic or similar, as approved by the particular law school); and
- A recommendation by a member of the school’s faculty or a labor/employment law attorney.
The deadline for the award is ongoing. To learn more about the OSBA Labor and Employment Law Section Award at your school, e-mail Jessica Emch at email@example.com.
