The award, named after the founding dean of the all-online law school, honors Juris Doctor graduates who achieved the highest cumulative grade point average.

County officials are looking for residents to submit nominations for this year's Alameda County Arts Leadership Awards.
The annual program enables the Alameda County Arts Commission to recognize five individuals, one from each of the county's supervisorial districts, for their outstanding achievements and contributions impacting the arts community and the residents of the county.
Nominees must be Alameda County residents who are involved in any arts discipline and may participate in a wide range of activities for an Alameda County-based arts organization. The award is open to adults and youth.
Those submitting nominations must also live in the county. Due May 15, nominations must be completed online at www.acgov.org/arts/awards.
The arts commissioners will review submissions in June, and winners will be honored this fall. For more information, visit the website or call 510-208-9646.
