The nomination form one must fill out to submit a nomination includes the following sections:
The ABA Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services reviews the nominations and selects the Brown Award recipient. The Award is presented during the ABA Midyear Meeting.
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, to elevate the awareness of the Award and advance insights into the work of the nominees, the Committee sponsors Brown Select which is awarded to the nominee that gets the most online votes from the general public.
