Nominations Being Accepted for Diversity/Inclusion Awards through Feb. 28

The LSBA’s Member Outreach and Diversity Department has opened the nomination period for two awards.

The nomination period will end on Feb. 28, 2017.

The LSBA’s Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson Trailblazer Award recognizes individual attorneys and judges who champion the ideals set forth by Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson, the first African-American chief justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court, who has exhibited an unwavering commitment to enhancing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession.

The LSBA’s Guardian of Diversity Award recognizes non-profit groups, local and specialty bar associations, and public interest organizations that implement and advance diversity programs to promote and support diversity in the legal community.

Both awards will be presented at the LSBA’s Annual Meeting in June 2017. For more information on the awards, click here, then select “Diversity and Inclusion Awards.”
