Business Law Section committee seeks nominees for young leaders award

WASHINGTON, April 27, 2020 — The American Bar Association Business Law Section’s Business Bankruptcy Committee will recognize 20 young lawyers with their inaugural 20/20 Partners Rising Young Leaders Award. The committee is seeking nominations for lawyers who have been in practice for five years or less. The nomination deadline is June 30.  The awards will be presented during a joint meeting with the National College of Bankruptcy Judges on Oct. 14 in San Diego.

In the two years following receiving the award, honorees will receive unique leadership opportunities within the Business Bankruptcy Committee to enhance their skills, networking and careers by speaking on programs, podcasts or webinars; authoring articles that are published in the committee’s e-newsletter or published in Business Law Today, the section’s online news publication; or preparing program materials posted on the ABA website.

Nominees will be evaluated for their emerging leadership, professional and/or social contributions; high-quality bankruptcy work; personal skills; and integrity. Eligible lawyers need not be ABA members; may be employees of private law firms of any size or work in the public sector; and may self-nominate.
