JEL23652-Blackford, Sheila P3 (2)  by Sheila Blackford   ©2009  Nominations for the Brown Award for Legal Access are due no later than December 17, 2009. These prestigious awards will be presented during the ABA Midyear Meeting in Orlando, February 3, 2010.

The legal needs of the middle class and those with moderate incomes goes unmet many times due to the cost of legal services. Annually, the Louis M. Brown Award for Legal Access is presented to those who have made creative contributions to the delivery of legal services to the middle class and those of moderate incomes.

Be inspired. Check out the award’s website for ideas that can be replicated for providing legal information, services, and representation. If you are doing something innovative nominate yourself. If you like what someone else is doing, nominate them. Hoping for an Oregon winner! Details here.

My appreciation to Will Hornsby of the ABA for bringing this December 17th deadline for nominations for this award to my attention.
