Nominations being accepted for ISBA Laureates
Nominations are being accepted for the 2017 class of Laureates of the ISBA Academy of Illinois Lawyers. ISBA members may submit nominations of colleagues through February 17, 2017.
A class of Laureates is selected by the Academy Board of Regents. Nominees must be ISBA members who personify the values, standards and ideals of the best of the legal profession.
Candidates must have practiced law primarily in Illinois for at least 25 years and have demonstrated a commitment to the highest principles through a pervasive record of service to the law, the profession and the public.
The Board of Regents emphasizes the importance of including letters of support – as many as 10 personal and 10 professional – with the nomination statement and resume.
Questions about the procedure may be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Academy was established in 1999 to celebrate excellence in the legal profession and to recognize lawyers throughout the state who have maintained high professional standards during exemplary careers.
