Sheila Y. Thomas Committee Excellence Award

Each year, the Section recognizes one of its Committees for contributing vitally to the American Bar Association's policies, and furthering the Section's mission of providing leadership to the legal profession in protecting and advancing human rights, civil liberties, and social justice. The award is traditionally given at the Annual Meeting and is accompanied by a luncheon, recognizing the work of the Committee.
