The TBA each year recognizes lawyers and law students who have shown exceptional commitment to increasing access to justice to individuals and communities. The 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. The nomination period for 2014 honorees is now open. Nominations may be submitted via the TBA website or by email to Liz Todaro. Download a hard copy submission form. Nominations are due no later than Sept. 5. 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. Awards are presented at the Annual Public Service Awards Luncheon in January.
