Nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 Public Justice Trial Lawyer of the Year Award.
Exceptional, socially significant cases that were won or settled within the calendar year 2014 are eligible for this year’s award. The cases won or settled by finalists cover a broad range of public interest work, including but not limited to civil rights, consumer protection, workers’ rights, human rights, environmental preservation, and corporate and governmental accountability. Finalists and recipients exemplify how trial lawyers use their skills and determination to create a more just society.
The Public Justice Foundation will announce the finalists for the Trial Lawyer of the Year Award in May 2015. The winner(s) will be announced at Public Justice’s 33rd Annual Awards Dinner & Gala in Montreal in July 2015.
Please send your Trial Lawyer of the Year Award nominations via e-mail to Aidan O’Shea at firstname.lastname@example.org (with the subject line “2015 TLOY Nomination”). Please include the nominee’s name and firm, the name of the case, how you think the case impacts the public interest and why you believe this attorney or litigation team deserves the award.
Public Justice will contact the nominees, from whom they will seek specific information regarding their cases and, where applicable, their legal teams.
