LexisNexis® Matthew Bender® announces the Twelfth Annual Daniel Levy Memorial Award for Outstanding Achievement in Immigration Law
Recipient to be announced at the 2013 AILA Conference in San Francisco, California.
A member of the Editorial Board of Bender’s Immigration Bulletin, Daniel Levy died at the age of 48 on September 14, 2001, in Los Angeles after a long battle with cancer. Mr. Levy was a prolific author, litigator, and scholar, and was widely known and loved by many in the immigration bar.

- enthusiastic advocacy on behalf of immigrant clients;
- deep scholarship in immigration law; and
- an expansive vision of justice.
We welcome nominations of all persons (not only attorneys), who have been working on the local and/or state level, as well as those who are known on the national level, and those who have been quietly toiling on behalf of immigrants, wherever they may be located. Readers are encouraged to forward nominations to Ellen Flynn at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2013.
