Excellence and Innovation in the Teaching of Law
17 July 2013
Longstanding partners LexisNexis® and the Australasian Law Teachers Association (ALTA) will recognise excellence and innovation in the teaching of law at the annual LexisNexis–ALTA Awards in September.
Law teachers across the Pacific region have the opportunity to submit applications for the LexisNexis–ALTA awards in three different categories including Early Career, and the peer–nominated award for Mentor of Teaching.
The recognition and reward of excellence in teaching and research in law in ways such as this is vital if the highest standards of legal scholarship are to be maintained.
Now in its sixth year, the LexisNexis–ALTA Awards showcase some of the best teaching methodologies performed in legal education. "Our partnership with ALTA represents not only our commitment to excellence and innovation in the law, but also recognising individual contributors that work to advance the rule of law on a daily basis," said TJ Viljoen, CEO of LexisNexis Pacific.
"We want to recognise those who work towards curriculum advancement, student engagement, and innovation of learning design to achieve improved learning results for students," said Viljoen.
"The recognition and reward of excellence in teaching and research in law in ways such as this is vital if the highest standards of legal scholarship are to be maintained. ALTA is delighted to be associated with the release of the LexisNexis–ALTA Teaching of Excellence Awards," said ALTA Chairperson Roman Tomasic.
Awards will be announced at the annual ALTA Conference on Sunday 29 September — Tuesday 1 October 2013 at the Australian National University, College of Law in Canberra.
Nominations are open until 16 August 2013. Visit http://www.lexisnexis.com.au/en-au/academic/sponsorships.page for more information.
