Welcome to the ACOEL Outreach Committee web page. Thank you for your interest in our work and opportunities to engage with our Committee. In its outreach endeavors, the Committee identifies, cultivates and develops collaborative relationships among and between ACOEL Fellows and with other external organizations. Ideal relationships yield tangible projects and increase awareness of the College and Fellows. Examples of valuable recent collaborations include: The Judge Alfred P. Murrah Center for Homeland Security Law & Policy 2019 Summit, cosponsored with the Oklahoma City University School of Law (April 18-19, 2019); the EPA Superfund Task Force Final Report Listening Sessions cosponsored with ABA SEER and AALS (Summer, 2020). The Outreach Committee is also the domestic pro bono committee for ACOEL.
The Outreach Committee facilitates ongoing projects as well, including the Annual Herrmann Legal Writing Award and the ACOEL Mentoring Program, among other activities. To accomplish our work, members of the Outreach Committee regularly connect with members of the Communications, Education, and International & Pro Bono Committees. The ACOEL Strategic Plan outlines several priorities for the Outreach Committee that focus our work. Some are highlighted below.
