Greetings! The deadline to make submissions for NCWBA award consideration is approaching!
Nominations are now being accepted from member associations for three NCWBA awards to be presented at the Women's Bar Leadership Summit to be held in Chicago on Friday, July 31. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, January 24 at 9:00 pm PST. Questions? Email us.
The Public Service Award is designed to recognize public service programs, projects or initiatives that NCWBA members have created to serve others. There is a wide range of programs, projects and initiatives that may qualify under the umbrella of a public service program. Members are encouraged to broaden their perspective on what public service means and deepen our commitment as lawyers to our public service obligations .For examples of previous award-winning projects, click here.
The Outstanding Member Program Award is given to member associations to highlight and recognize innovative and effective programs and projects for their own members. Prior awards recipients and descriptions of the programs previously recognized can be found here.
The Women's Law Student Association Award will be presented for the first time in 2020. Member women's law school groups may nominate anything from a unique presentation, service project, panel discussion or other initiative. Be creative: the sky's the limit! We invite you to share this and information about NCWBA's new membership option for law student groups with a women's law school organization in your network.
A central goal of the NCWBA is to share best practices and program ideas with one another, and our annual awards are one way to do this. We hope you will send us a nomination!
