Ohio Pro Bono Award Nominations Due July 10

The Ohio State Bar Foundation (OSBF) will present the John and Ginny Elam Pro Bono Award at its annual meeting this year. Nominations are due July 10.

The award recognizes a lawyer’s exceptional pro bono legal work in Ohio, which may consist of “pro bono representation necessary to make the system of justice available to all, support to organizations that provide pro bono representation to indigent clients, or time and skills donated to community, governmental, and other activities that promote the common good.”

In addition to a public announcement at the OSBF’s meeting in October, the recipient will receive media recognition and will be able to designate a 501(c)(3) organization to receive a $5,000 grant from the Columbus Bar Foundation award fund.

To nominate an attorney, send a letter to:

Award Selection Committee Chair
Honorable Jeffrey E. Froelich
Second District Court of Appeals of Ohio
41 N. Perry St., P.O. Box 972
Dayton, Ohio 45422-2170

Nominations are due July 10 and should include a brief description of the nominee’s qualifications and contact information for the nominee and nominator.

The award will be presented at the Ohio State Bar Foundation annual meeting luncheon October 4.
