Foundation seeks Medal of Honor Award nominees

The Florida Bar Foundation will be accepting nominations for the 2021 Medal of Honor Awards until February 1.

The Medal of Honor Award is given in two categories. The first category is for members of The Florida Bar, including practicing lawyers, judges, or teachers in the legal field. The second category is for non-lawyers, including lawyers who are not currently practicing. All nominees must be Florida residents.

Nominees in the lawyer category must have a demonstrated dedication to the mission of The Florida Bar Foundation, which seeks to provide greater access to justice in Florida. Nominees must also be demonstrably committed to the purpose of The Florida Bar, which strives to inculcate in its members the principles of duty and service to the public, to improve the administration of justice, and to advance the science of jurisprudence.

Nominees in the non-lawyer category must have made outstanding contributions to the improvement of the administration of justice in Florida through research, writing, or other deeds of significant character and quality. The Foundation does not always award the Medal of Honor award in this category each year.

Nominations can be completed online at Nomination forms also are available from the Foundation and should be sent to The Florida Bar Foundation, Medal of Honor Awards Program, 875 Concourse Parkway South, Suite 195, Maitland, FL 32751 or via email to [email protected].

The Medal of Honor awards will be presented at the Foundation’s annual award ceremony. For more information, call The Florida Bar Foundation at 800-541-2195 or 407-960-7000.
