The Daily Record’s Leadership in Law award was established in 2001 to honor the many Maryland legal professionals — lawyers and judges — whose dedication to their occupation and to their communities deserves particular recognition.
For 2016, The Daily Record has added two new categories to the Leadership In Law award, Generation J.D. and Lifetime Achievement Award. Generation J.D. shines a light on young and rising lawyers who are already making their mark on the profession both in the courtroom and the community. The Lifetime Achievement Award honors a lawyer or judge who has made a career of exemplifying what it means to be a leader in the law.
