The Outstanding Achievement Award recognizes contributions and substantial accomplishments in the Advancement of the Profession, Professional Achievement, Contributions to Education and Outreach, and Mentoring.  These awards honor legal practitioners who maximize attorney potential; foster high ethical standards; increase diversity in the legal workforce; reach innovative achievements in service to their clients, Bar Associations, legal service organizations and demonstrated  substantial pro bono work; engage in efforts having a significant impact on, and leading to improvements in, legal education and in expanding the public’s understanding of the law and the legal profession; and, make exemplary and sustained mentoring efforts that directly enhance one or more persons’ education and career development.

The Public Service Award recognizes attorneys and non-lawyers for unusual and significant contributions to the Hispanic/Latino Community, to the State of Maryland and to the community in which they live or work.  This award honors community organizations, businesses, civic leaders and private citizens for their contributions to the improvement of Public Service at all levels, encouraging all individual citizens and organizations to engage in constructive activities, as well as to pursue standards of excellence in the performance of their duties, and to go beyond and outside of their immediate day-to-day responsibilities.
