Nominate a Worthy Attorney For a Citizen Lawyer Award

By Pamela S. Duffy

The Local Bar Outreach Committee is soliciting nominations for the 2019 Citizen Lawyer Awards for NCBA members who have distinguished themselves in their volunteer service to community and civic causes.  Since 2007, the NCBA has recognized lawyers who provide exemplary public service with its Citizen Lawyer Awards. Since 2016, I have had the pleasure of serving as a chair of this Committee.  We have the privilege of reviewing information about dedicated lawyers across our state who give back to their communities and awarding them recognition for that service.  A list of past recipients can be found here with descriptions of the great work they have performed for their local communities or in state-wide organizations. We encourage you to identify and nominate deserving lawyers in your community so that we may honor them at the NCBA annual meeting in June.  Our hope is to get a pool of applicants who are diverse in many respects:  geographically; the type of volunteer work performed; age, race and gender.
