Award for Distinguished Contribution to Psychology and Law
The AP-LS Award for Distinguished Contribution to Psychology and Law honors one who has made distinguished theoretical, empirical, and/or applied contributions to the field of psychology and law.

Nominations must include:
- A copy of the nominee’s vita.
- A letter detailing the nominee’s distinguished contributions to psychology and law.
- Names and addresses of four individuals who are familiar with the nominee’s work and who would be able to address the nominee’s contributions to the field of psychology and law (or additional letters from these four individuals).
