The Award for Excellence in the Promotion of Board Certification recognizes excellence and creativity by a certified lawyer or law firm in advancing the public’s knowledge of and appreciation for legal board certification. Accepted entries are newsletters, brochures, news stories, speeches, PowerPoint presentations, mementos, special events, and print, radio, and television advertisements.
