NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans CityBusiness is looking for nominations to identify and honor 50 outstanding legal professionals whose successes in law and contributions to the community have set the pace for the legal community. Nominees must have a juris doctor. A panel of judges will use the nomination forms and independent research to make final selections. Please be as complete and thorough as possible.
Nominations can be submitted here. The nomination deadline for 2021 is 5 p.m. on June 4, 2021.
Submitting multiple nominations for one nominee is not necessary, as the selection committee will not decide based on show of support but rather on quality and thoroughness of supporting information.
Honorees will be recognized in four categories:
Firm associated: Honors lawyers associated with a law firm for their professional achievement and community involvement and whose performance is considered exemplary by their peers.
In-house counsel: Honors lawyers not associated with a firm but who are practicing law and serve as the legal lifeline for their company.
Court associated: Honors judges, prosecutors, public defenders and clerks in the court system for going above and beyond their daily duties.
Educators: Honors professionals who teach the practice of law for providing a model of professionalism for students and whose performance is considered exemplary by their peers.
