Seeking Nominations for the 2024 Outstanding Nonprofit Lawyer Awards

The Academy Award nominations were announced earlier this week, but even more importantly (at least for some nonprofit organizations attorneys), we also received the following news:

The Committee on Nonprofit Organizations of the American Bar Association’s Business Law Section is calling for nominations for the “2024 Outstanding Nonprofit Lawyer Awards.” The Committee presents the Awards annually to outstanding lawyers in the categories of Academic, Attorney, Nonprofit In-House Counsel, and Young Attorney (under 35 years old or in practice for less than 10 years). The Committee will also bestow its Vanguard Award for lifetime commitment or achievement on a leading legal practitioner in the nonprofit field. Nominations are due by March 11, 2024.

For a nomination form, please go to the Nonprofit Organizations Committee webpage and scroll down to find the form under “Outstanding Nonprofit Lawyer Awards.” The Awards will be discussed at the Business Law Section’s Spring Meeting on April 4-6, 2024. The Committee expects to formally announce the awardees in early May.

Send nomination forms by March 11, 2024 to:

Some of our favorite people and lawyers and academics committed to the nonprofit sector are past recipients of these awards. We hope those working as attorneys for nonprofits or teaching nonprofit law consider nominating a deserving person.
