At the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) 2023 Annual Meeting, Professor Arlene Kanter, Director of the College of Law’s Disability Law and Policy Program, received a Chai Feldblum Award from the AALS Section on Law Professors with Disabilities and Allies.
The award is named after Chai Feldblum J.D., an EEO and DEI consultant, Partner and Director of Workplace Culture Consulting at Morgan Lewis, and former Commissioner of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. This is the third year the award has been given.
Kanter’s nomination letters note that she is “an influential scholar, innovator, and leader,” and that students and colleagues often conveyed their personal thanks for your advocacy on their behalf.
Kanter also spoke on a panel about experiences requesting disability accommodations as a law school employee.
