Nominations for KBAs Outstanding Young Lawyer Award

Each year the Kentucky Bar Association Young Lawyers Section recognizes an Outstanding Young Lawyer for his/her civic activities, legal accomplishments and community involvement.  If you know of an attorney who would be a worthy recipient of the Outstanding Young Lawyer Award, please submit a brief letter (no more than one page, single-spaced) discussing why the nominee is deserving of the award.  The nominating letters should include factors such as, but not limited to, civic activities, legal accomplishments, and community involvement.

Once the nomination letters are received, the Awards Committee will forward a more detailed application to the nominee for him/her to complete.  The nominating letters and nominees’ applications will then be forwarded to a panel of judges for their consideration.

Who is considered a Young Lawyer?  Any Kentucky lawyer who is 40 years of age or under or any Kentucky lawyer who has practiced 10 years or less regardless of age.

Nominating letters should be sent to Walter Aden Hawkins at Logsdon & Hawkins, PSC, PO Box 3400, Bowling Green, Kentucky 42102-3400 or as an attachment by email to whawkins@landhlaw.com.  Nominating letters must be received by April 14, 2006 or the nominee will not be eligible for the award.  The Outstanding Young Lawyer recipient will be announced at the KBA Annual Convention being held June 14-16, 2006 in Covington.  If you have any questions, please contact Walter at (270) 843-1500.
