Also considered will be contributing skill, knowledge and influence as a lawyer to further the profession’s commitment to serving others and to promoting the public good, including efforts to provide all people with access to the law and judicial system.

Past recipients are John “Jake” Schickel (2009-10), Caroline Emery (2010-11), Carl Dawson (2011-12), Hugh Cotney (2012-13), John Macdonald (2013-14), Rutledge Liles (2014-15), Courtney Grimm (2015-16) and Mike Tanner (2016-17).
