The Defense Trial Counsel’s Annual Meeting will be held Nov. 17-18 at French Lick Resort. One of the highlights of the meeting is the presentation of the “Defense Lawyer of the Year,” the “Diplomat of the Indiana Defense Trial Counsel,” and the “Outstanding Young Lawyer” awards. The DTCI Awards Committee is now receiving nominations for the 2011 awards. The deadline for nominations is Oct. 1.
“Diplomat of the Indiana Defense Trial Counsel” indicates members of the Indiana bar who, in the judgment of the officers and directors of the Defense Trial Counsel of Indiana, have distinguished themselves throughout their careers through outstanding contributions to the representation of clients in the defense of litigation matters and, therefore, have been designated recipients of the award, Diplomat of the Indiana Defense Trial Counsel.
The “Defense Lawyer of the Year” award shall be presented to a licensed lawyer who, in the opinion of the Awards Committee, as approved by the board of directors, has promoted the interests of the Indiana defense bar since the last annual meeting of the DTCI, in a most significant way in the fields of litigation, legislation, publication, or participation in local, state, or national defense organizations.
The “Outstanding Young Lawyer” award shall be presented to a member of the Defense Trial Counsel, less than 35 years old, who has shown leadership qualities in service to the Indiana defense bar, the national defense bar, or the community.
Nominations for these three awards may be submitted to the committee’s chair:
