It's hard to believe but summer is winding down, and with the start of fall brings us the opportunity to nominate folks in the legal community for the Gil I. Berry Award! The Criminal Justice Section is now accepting applications for the annual Gil I. Berry Award, which is presented each year to an individual within the Indy criminal court community. Winners are selected after nomination alone with a focus on recognizing the “unsung” individuals who work in the criminal court system. While not explicit requirement, past winners have traditionally been non-lawyers, including probation officers, community corrections officers and court staff. Working in criminal courts is a tough, intense and sometimes thankless job. Our jobs as attorneys are often made much easier by the hard work of the many non-lawyers around us. Our goal with the Gil I. Berry Award is to spotlight an individual who may not have received the recognition that he or she deserves!

Nominations are due by Monday, September 24. You can nominate a deserving person here.
