Steven Willborn, Dean at the Univ. of Nebraska College of Law, recently mentioned that he thought information on the Law School Admission Council's (LSAC) Shelton Prize would interest ELS Blog readers. I immediately agreed and reprint the nomination announcement below. Please note that nominations are due by 1 February 2009 for consideration for the 2009 Shelton Prize. It's nice to see such recognition for and attention to empirical legal research.
