Due 8/31: PSJD Pro Bono Publico Award Nominations!

  CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR THE 2016 PRO BONO PUBLICO AWARD

Each year, through the PSJD Pro Bono Publico Award, NALP recognizes the significant contributions that law students make to underserved populations, the public interest community, and legal education by performing pro bono work. The Pro Bono Publico Award is available to any second- or third-year law student at a PSJD U.S. or Canadian subscriber school. Each subscriber school may submit up to 2 nominees.

The recipient will be announced during National Pro Bono Week (October 23-29, 2016) and honored during an Award Ceremony at the recipient’s school thereafter. The award recipient will receive a commemorative plaque and a monetary award of $1,000.

Selection is based on the extracurricular commitment the nominees have made to law-related public service projects or organizations; the quality of work they performed; and the impact of their work on the community, their fellow students, and the school. Actual pro bono work will be the primary consideration.

The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, August 31, 2015 by 5pm ET. 

The initial nomination packet should include the nomination form (attached), the nominee’s resume, and a statement of nomination. More information is available on the PSJD website.
