Identified as an outstanding leader in her field who has made significant contributions in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service, Professor Pollman received the award together with University of Hawaii Professor Jill Ramsfield. Professors Pollman and Ramsfield will be honored at the Section lunch on Saturday, January 5, 2013, at the AALS Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

Professor Pollman serves as Director of Boyd's nationally-ranked Lawyering Process Program. A founding faculty member, Professor Pollman teaches in the areas of Lawyering Process, Persuasion, Negotiation, and Leadership and Law. A past president of the Association of Legal Writing Directors (ALWD) and editor of several journals, Professor Pollman's scholarship focuses on legal writing, pedagogy and rhetoric.

Congratulations, Terry!
