Nominees sought for YLD pro bono award.
The Florida Bar YLD Pro Bono Award recognizes public service or legal aid performed by a young lawyer (under the age of 36 or one who has not practiced for more than five years in any jurisdiction) who provides outstanding contributions to those in need of free legal services.
The purpose of this award is to encourage more Florida young lawyers to freely contribute their time and expertise in providing legal services to people in their community who cannot otherwise afford those services. In some instances, this will include legal services to charitable organizations which serve the poor. The award is intended to provide recognition to young lawyers who have made an outstanding contribution in this area. The emphasis of these awards is on legal services to the poor.
Nomination forms may be found on the YLD Web site at www.flayld.org/Scholarships/probonoawards.htm and nominations must be submitted on or before October 15 to The Florida Bar, Austin Newberry, Young Lawyers Division Program Administrator, 651 E. Jefferson Street, Tallahassee 32399-2300.
