Nominations will be accepted for the following categories:

—Pro bono agencies or programs
—Law firms (Small, Medium, Large)
—Government or corporate legal departments
—Non-legal or organizational involvement
If someone you know has made an impact by donating their professional time and expertise, please consider nominating them for one of these awards.
