The TBA each year recognizes outstanding service by those who demonstrate an exceptional commitment to increasing access to justice for underserved individuals and communities. Awards are presented at the Annual Public Service Awards Luncheon in January. Awards recognize pro bono service in three categories: work performed by an attorney employed by an organization primarily involved in providing legal representation to the indigent, work performed by a private attorney and work performed by a law student volunteer. Nominations should be submitted via the TBA website or to Liz Todaro no later than Sept. 6. Submissions should include a narrative of the individual’s accomplishments, the nominator’s reasons for selecting the individual and a description of how the nominee meets the award criteria.
