2020 Award Winners

2019

ComplianceNet is pleased to announce awards to promote and highlight scholarly efforts in our discipline.​ The following were awarded at the 2019 conference.

2019 Junior Scholar Publication Award: Doron Dorfman

The award recognizes scholarly work of junior faculty, post-docs, graduate students, and/or practitioners with fewer than 8 years experience post-Ph.D. completion. Papers must be primarily the work of one or more junior scholars. Co-authored papers with post-tenure scholars will be accepted, but a junior scholar should be the primary author and submission letters should describe the relevant contributions of each co-author.

The winner of the Junior Scholar Publication Award was Doron Dorfman.
