The FBA is now accepting nominations and applications for the Younger Federal Lawyer Awards! Please consider nominating someone for this award recognizing exceptional service and outstanding achievement.
The primary goal of the Younger Federal Lawyer Award is to encourage younger federal lawyers to attain high standards of professional achievement and to accord public recognition for outstanding performance. A nominee may be qualified by outstanding legal ability and performance over a sustained period, or because of a specific accomplishment for which he or she is primarily responsible. Regardless of whether the achievements are of a general or a specific nature, they should have resulted in a significant benefit to the federal government and the legal profession and contributed to the development of public law. The nominee does not have to be a current member of the FBA. Please click here for further details on eligibility requirements and the nomination process. All applications must be submitted electronically to by June 15. Awards will be presented in September during the Annual Meeting and Convention in Tampa.
