In addition, the Liberty Bell Award Subcommittee of the Young Lawyers Division’s Law Week/Liberty Bell Committee is seeking nominations for the Liberty Bell Award to be presented at the Law Day Ceremony on May 1, 2020. As we celebrate the sixty-second anniversary of Law Day and this year’s theme of “Your Vote, Your Voice, Our Democracy: The 19th Amendment at 100,” we encourage submissions reflecting the theme in our State. The nominee should be someone who exemplifies lifelong service to the law in North Carolina and the 2020 Law Day theme. We request that full information be given about each candidate’s qualifications, including a resume or brief description of the nominee’s career accomplishments and service to North Carolina. Many districts choose to get together and vote on one or more nominees, while others do so less formally. Additionally, individual members of the Bar or non-attorneys may nominate candidates. We encourage all districts statewide to participate. A Nomination Form is available. Any name(s) that you or members of your district wish to present should be postmarked and mailed c/o Leila A. Hicks, 280 S. Mangum St., Suite 400, Durham, NC 27701 or emailed to Leila Hicks no later than Friday, March 20, 2020, for presentation to the committee.
