The Government Lawyer Section is now accepting nominations for its Claude Pepper Outstanding Government Lawyer Award, which recognizes “an outstanding lawyer who has made an extraordinary and exemplary contribution as a practicing government lawyer.”

The nominee must be a member of the Bar in good standing and a practicing government lawyer who has provided legal services at least 10 years in full-time government employment. The nominee also should exemplify the highest ideals of dedication, professionalism, and ethics in service to the public. Elected officials or judges currently serving in that capacity are not eligible.

Completed nomination forms for each nominee and four copies of materials should be submitted by April 15.

The Outstanding Government Lawyer Award is named in honor of Claude Pepper, a Florida attorney, U.S. Senator, and U.S. Representative who advocated on behalf of the people and represented the highest ideals of government service through 12 presidential administrations.
