Thurgood Marshall Award Nominations Due by Sept. 14
Nominations are now being accepted for the Criminal Justice Section's Thurgood Marshall Award. The award will be presented at the Section's Annual Holiday Party.
The award represents the highest honor that the Criminal Justice Section can give to anyone, whether or not a member of the Section, who exemplifies the ideals of Justice Thurgood Marshall's career. The award should be for longtime service, not an individual event, although a specific event can be the triggering factor. For more information about the standards for awards, please click here and visit the Criminal Justice Section's website
This year's Awards Committee is co-chaired by James Funt and Kevin Mincey. Nominations and/or questions should be sent to either firstname.lastname@example.org
All nominations should include the full name, address and telephone number of both the nominee and the person submitting the nomination, a summary of the nominee's accomplishments, and any pertinent supporting material the committee should consider. All nominations must be received no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 14.
In addition, you may make recommendations for the Cesare Beccaria Award, presented annually to one who exemplifies the ideals of the career of Cesare Beccaria. The Beccaria Award recognizes a member of the Philadelphia Bar who has had distinguished achievement in the field of education in criminal justice, including legal and/or general education activities in the field. The Justinian Society participates in the award and its presentation. For more information about the standards for awards, please click here and visit the Criminal Justice Section's website
