Gulfport, Fla. – Stetson University College of Law is seeking nominations for the 2004 William Reece Smith Jr. Public Service Award. The award will be presented at the law school’s spring graduation events. The deadline for nominations is Monday, March 29.

“Wm. Reece Smith has dedicated his professional career to public service and access to justice, and this award in his honor recognizes individuals who have given their time and talents to help others and to improve their communities and the justice system,” said Dean Darby Dickerson.
