Public Lawyer of the Year Nominations Sought
STATE BAR SEEKS NOMINATIONS FOR 2014 PUBLIC LAWYER OF THE YEAR
The California State Bar’s Public Law Section Executive Committee is accepting nominations for the 2014 Ronald M. George Public Lawyer of the Year Award. Applications are due March 17, 2014.
The annual award recognizes an exceptional lawyer who has dedicated a significant portion of his or her career to public service. Award recipients are lawyers who represent the highest level of professional and ethical standards and who are inspirational advocates for the public interest. The Public Law Section recognizes the award recipient at a reception held at the State Bar’s annual conference in the fall.
The award is named after retired California Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald M. George, who traditionally spoke at the award ceremony and introduced the year’s winner. Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye has continued the tradition and presented the award in 2011, 2012, and 2013.
