The Florida Bar Foundation is accepting nominations for its 2022 Medal of Honor Awards until February 1.

The Medal of Honor Award is given in two categories. The first category is for members of The Florida Bar, including practicing lawyers, judges, or teachers in the legal field. The second category is for non-lawyers, including lawyers who are not currently practicing.   All nominees must be Florida residents.

Nominees in the lawyer category must have a demonstrated dedication to the mission of The Florida Bar Foundation, which seeks to provide greater access to the justice system in Florida. Nominees must also be demonstrably committed to the purpose of The Florida Bar, which strives to inculcate in its members the principles of duty and service to the public, to improve the administration of justice, and to advance the science of jurisprudence.
