YLD Seeks Nominations for Craig M. Perry Service Award

The Young Lawyers Division of the Philadelphia Bar Association is accepting nominations for the Craig M. Perry Service Award. This award is presented annually to a young lawyer — 37 years old or younger or within the first three years of practice — who has devoted substantial time and energy to community-oriented activities, including, but not limited to, pro bono and charity work.

Perry was a member of the YLD Executive Committee who suffered an untimely death. He was very involved in community service and active in student-related and other YLD programs.

Nominations are encouraged and should include the individual's name, address and a brief statement describing his or her qualifications. The deadline for nominations is Friday, January 25, 2008. All nominations should be submitted to Tracey McCloskey at the Philadelphia Bar Association, 1101 Market Street, 11th Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19107 or tmccloskey@philabar.org.
