Nominations Sought for Public Servant Award
The Government and Public Interest Law Committee is seeking nominations for the 2014 Public Servant Award. This award is presented at the Annual Meeting of the Peoria County Bar Association on the second Monday of July each year. The first recipient of this award, presented on July 8, 2013, was the Honorable Michael E. Brandt, Chief Judge of the Tenth Judicial Circuit of Illinois. The Public Servant Award recognizes the positive impact made by our community's government and public interest lawyers.
The Public Servant Award will be presented to an extraordinary individual for outstanding service to the public. By celebrating the contributions and career of a single lawyer, we also recognize the power of the law in serving the public interest and honor the fundamental values of our legal profession and justice system.
The award honors a licensed Illinois attorney who has provided at least ten years of legal service to an entity that is funded by tax dollars or is otherwise considered a government, academic, or non-profit legal service organization. The honoree must be a PCBA member who is an outstanding leader in his or her field and follows the highest ethical standards.
