Pro bono and public service represent some of the noblest traditions in the legal profession, and the amount of work performed by individuals in our community is nothing short of amazing. The awards presented at the CBA & CBF Pro Bono & Public Service Awards Luncheon honor lawyers from a broad cross-section of the legal community whose passion for serving others is reflected in their extraordinary commitment to the ideals of equal access to justice. Recognizing several of our profession’s unsung heroes and their dedication to pro bono and public service, these awards also serve to build awareness of the impact our collective efforts can have in the lives of the most vulnerable people in our community.
This year’s awards were presented by Co-Chairs Kelly McNamara Corley and Rebecca Eisner Reed on July 18, 2016 at the Fairmont Hotel. For more information, you can read the press release about the event or watch videos of the event or the individual award recipients’ remarks.
Special thanks to the sponsors that made this event possible.
