Do you know an outstanding lawyer called to the bar between 1999 and 2009?

Nominations open today for Precedent Magazine’s new award that will recognize lawyers called to the bar in the past ten years who have shown excellence and leadership in their practice and their community.

Think about it. You must know a lawyer who deserves a little credit. Maybe it’s someone who is a star in the courtroom. Or someone you always want on your deal. Could be a lawyer who has bravely struck out on their own or whose work as in-house counsel goes the extra distance. Maybe they’ve worked tirelessly for a non-profit or Legal Aid. Could be a lawyer whose pro bono contribution has had a great impact on the community or someone who takes time beyond their billables to mentor, teach or publish. Give it some thought. We want to recognize the next generation of legal stars.

Winners will be profiled in the next issue of Precedent and honoured at an awards reception.

Nominations are due April 1, 2010.
