7th Circuit Bar seeks Indiana attorneys to honor

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

Each year, the 7th Circuit Bar Association honors members of the legal profession for their pro bono and public service work who are from the host state of the association’s annual meeting. Indiana is hosting the meeting May 5-7 in Indianapolis.

The bar association is seeking nominees for pro bono and public service work performed in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals; U.S. District Courts in Indiana; and U.S. Bankruptcy Courts in Indiana. Nominees do not need to be members of the 7th Circuit Bar Association, but must practice at the federal level. Nominations are due March 1.

Nominations are welcomed of attorneys who have been court-appointed or otherwise taken on civil or criminal federal court matters on behalf of those in need, regardless of whether the work involved written advocacy, oral advocacy or both. Nominations may be of an attorney, group, firm or other organization.

The criteria for the award include a significant pro bono or public service undertaking involving federal court litigation and practice as the highest degree of excellence and ethics, according to the bar association.

A letter of nomination and any supporting materials, preferably including a professional biography of the nominee(s) may be submitted to the Pro Bono & Public Service Awards Committee, c/o Debbie Groboski, 7th Circuit Bar Association, 53 W. Jackson Blvd, Suite 1050, Chicago, IL 60604; or emailed to dg@ag-ltd.com. Include a description of the nature and extent of the pro bono or public service work and the court in which it was performed.

For more information on the awards, contact Pro Bono & Public Service Committee Chair Margot Klein at margot.klein@comcast.net or Indiana Department of Child Services Deputy General Counsel John Wood at 317-233-6457.
