Wallace Medal

The APL’s website states:

“The Wallace Medal was inaugurated in 1992.  It is named after Keith Wallace and honours his contribution to the development of pensions literature, not least his editorship for many years of our Pension Lawyer journal.

The medal is awarded for meritorious work in communicating and explaining legal issues affecting pensions, employee benefits and employment.  The Main Committee of the APL decides on the award, and the winner is presented with a silver medal.”
