Exceptional Service Award
Every fall, the Project celebrates volunteer lawyers at its Volunteer Recognition & Awards Dinner. Pro bono firms are nominated by their colleagues for exceptional service to death row prisoners and honored with the Exceptional Service Award.
This year's Exceptional Service awards will be presented to two outstanding volunteer law firms, DLA Piper and Dorsey & Whitney.
John Paul Stevens Guiding Hand of Counsel Award
The Project also recognizes the extraordinary efforts of individual lawyers with the John Paul Stevens Guiding Hand of Counsel Award, which was first presented to Justice Stevens in 2011.
This year's Guiding Hand of Counsel Award will be presented to Meaghan VerGow of O'Melveny & Myers.
