Started in 2005, Leadership in Law recognizes legal professionals in four categories: firm associated, court associated, in-house counsel and educators. Honorees are selected based on their professional and community involvement and achievements that have set the pace for the overall community.
Honorees are recognized in four categories:
- Firm associated: Honors lawyers associated with a law firm for their professional achievement and community involvement and whose performance is considered exemplary by their peers.
- In-house counsel: Honors lawyers not associated with a firm but who are practicing law and serve as the legal lifeline for their company.
- Court associated: Honors judges, prosecutors, public defenders and clerks in the court system for going above and beyond their daily duties.
- Educators: Honors professionals who teach the practice of law for providing a model of professionalism for students and whose performance is considered exemplary by their peers.
