Out-of-State Pro Bono Service Award Nominations Due
October 22 @ 5:00 pm
Nominations for The Florida Bar President’s Out-of-State Pro Bono Service Award are now open, and are due by October 22, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. EDT. The nomination process is completely online for the first time. The online fillable nomination form is located at: https://www.floridabar.org/probonoawards (under “President’s Award”).
To be eligible for the out-of-state award, the attorney must be admitted to The Florida Bar and reside and practice outside the state of Florida (Florida Bar members in good standing, including members who are “inactive” and “CLE Exempt,” are eligible for the award). Nominees must not be an employee of an organization that provides free or low-cost legal services to the poor. Attorneys may be nominated by another person, or they may nominate themselves. While the emphasis is on legal services to the poor, all forms of pro bono service will be considered by the selection committee. Nominees’ pro bono service contributions may be cumulative. Consideration is not limited to the events of the immediate past year.
