The criteria were revised in 2007 to include the following points:
To submit your nomination, please fill out the electronic Nomination Form. The deadline for nominations is December 11, 2015. The form includes the following sections:
The ABA Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services will review the nominations and select the 2016 Brown Award recipient. The Award will be presented during the ABA Midyear Meeting in February 2016.
Meritorious Recognition Awards may be granted to additional nominees at the Committee's discretion. The Committee reserves the right not to present the Award in a given year.
Suitable nominees will be included in the Committee publication Profiles of Moderate Income Delivery Programs and featured on the Committee's website.
In addition to the Committee’s determination of the Brown Award recipient, we are introducing Brown Select, an opportunity for everyone to voice their choice through online voting. Brown Select will be presented to the Brown Award nominee that gets the most votes from the general public. 2016 nominees will be posted, and voting will open, in December 2015.
