UK College of Law Alumni Hall of Fame Nomination Form
The Alumni Hall of Fame is the highest award presented jointly by the College and the UK Law Alumni Association. This distinction is awarded with great care to either alumni who have distinguished themselves by contributions that they have made in their own particular field of work, or in the betterment of humanity or to former faculty who have taught at the UK College of Law for at least 20 years.
The honor of Hall of Fame selection is not given so much in recognition of an office or position held, but rather for the actual merit of the individual’s work in his or her chosen field of endeavor and professional leadership. Candidates must have exhibited a high degree of character and integrity.
To be selected for the Hall of Fame, a candidate must meet the following criteria:
- Candidate must have reached and remained at the pinnacle of his or her field for a period of time sufficient to demonstrate perseverance and maturation and/or must have effected a profound positive influence on the College of Law in the years since his or her graduation.
- Professional success and significant contributions must be recognized by his or her peers as having reached and remained at the pinnacle of his or her field and/or having a profound positive influence on the College of Law in the years since his or her graduation.
- Professional success and significant contributions to a specialty are not achievement enough to warrant selection to the Alumni Hall of Fame.
