The Lifetime Achievement Award is bestowed upon an individual who has had a distinguished career of teaching, service, and scholarship for at least 20 years, and has had a significant impact on women, the legal community, and the academy through mentoring, writing, speaking, activism, and by providing opportunities to others.
