Awards

Each year the CBF partners with The Chicago Bar Association to recognize exemplary attorneys in our legal community through the CBF/CBA Pro Bono and Public Service Awards and the Justice John Paul Stevens Award.

The Pro Bono and Public Service Awards celebrate outstanding members of the legal profession who have used their talents and resources to improve access to justice for the less fortunate in our community. This year’s awards will be presented at our annual Pro Bono and Public Service Awards Luncheon on July 12, 2018.
