If ever there was an award for readers of this blog, this must be it! The New York Law Journal is seeking "to recognize Lawyers Who Lead by Example, attorneys in our community who have made an outstanding contribution by providing free legal services to low- and moderate-income New Yorkers and/or who have devoted their time to public service in the form of improvement to the courts, the laws or the profession."
The announcement says that "candidates should have devoted a significant portion of their time to activities that benefit the public such as improvements in the administration of the courts, the law and the bar, legal and government institutions, and legal education. Examples include frequent bar leadership positions, long-time work on a task force or on a committee that recommended and implemented change; etc. The nominations for Lawyers Who Lead by Example are open to ALL members of the profession in New York, including solo practitioners, attorneys in firms large and small, in-house legal departments, academia, government and nonprofit agencies"
