Prior to the Section's Spring Conference, the Section of Family Law Jean Crowe Pro Bono Award Committee selects an attorney to receive the Section's Jean Crowe Pro Bono Award.
This award honors the legacy of former ABA Family Law Section Council member, Jean Crowe, a founder of the Nashville Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and longtime attorney with the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands.
The recipient of the Family Law Section Jean Crowe Pro Bono Award shall be a person who has made a difference by offering services on a pro bono basis, or promotes organization(s) that provide legal services to low income and/or underrepresented populations. The recipient shall be a person who goes "above and beyond." The recipient does not have to work for a legal services entity, but must show commitment and dedication to the above. If a potential recipient works for a legal services entity, that person must rise above the normal call of employment.
The award is presented during the Section’s Spring Conference. A $1,500 cash prize will be given to the pro bono or public service organization of the recipient’s choice.
