Pro Bono & Public Service Awards Luncheon
The 2023 CBA & CBF Pro Bono & Public Service Awards were held on Thursday, July 20 at the Hilton Chicago. We were excited to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the event and to once again honor seven unsung heroes in our legal community for their remarkable pro bono and public service achievements.
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 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. These awards also serve to build awareness of the impact our collective efforts can have on the lives of the most vulnerable people in our community.
