Here’s one I missed:
Janai Nelson was included in the Lawyers of Color 50 under 50 list (most influential minority law professors aged 50 or younger) and is the recipient of the 2013 Derrick A. Bell Award from the American Association of Law Schools (AALS) Section on Minority Groups. The award is presented each year to a junior faculty member who has made an extraordinary contribution through scholarship, teaching, and mentoring. She was also granted tenure and promoted to full professor at St. John’s University School of Law. Most recently, she was appointed the law school’s Associate Dean of Faculty Scholarship.
