My friend and College Fellow Tim Corcoran will chair this year’s InnovAction Awards competition. He has posted some useful information about the competition at his Web site.
Now in its eighth year, the InnovAction Awards conduct a worldwide search for lawyers, law firms and other providers of legal services who are engaged in extraordinary, game-changing, innovative activities. The award entries are judged based on the following criteria:
- Originality: Is this a novel idea or approach, or a new twist on an existing idea or approach?
- Disruption: Does this entry change an important element of the legal services process for the better, and marketplace expectations along with it?
- Value: Is the client and/or legal industry better off because of this entry, in terms of the affordability, ease, relevance or effect of legal services?
- Effectiveness: Has this entry delivered real, demonstrable or measurable benefits, for the provider, its clients, or the marketplace generally?
