The Monroe County Bar Association has issued a call for nominations for the annual Raymond J. Pauley Award, which celebrates Pauley’s commitment to his fellow members of the legal profession.
The award was created by a resolution by the MCBA’s Board of Trustees in 1999 and honors volunteers who contribute their time and talents to present Academy of Law CLE programming.
The award will be presented June 22 during the MCBA’s annual Installation Dinner.
Nominees cannot hold a seat on the Center for Education board, must volunteer as presenters, or otherwise contribute, to CLE programs for MCBA, demonstrate “exceptional contributions to the furtherance of legal education,” as well as academic achievement and scholarship.
Contributions to the Center for Education are not limited to the current bar year, and the award can be given in recognition of a volunteer’s ongoing CLE efforts through the years, in addition to other organizations (NYSBA, West, for instance).
Previous recipients include the Hon. Raymond Cornelius, Lucien Morin II, Gary Muldoon, Jill Myers, Sharon Stiller and Don Twietmeyer. Mark Hosken and Brian Shiffrin shared the honor in 2009 for their joint efforts to advance criminal law education.
Contact Louise Spinelli via e-mail to LSpinelli@mcba.org or call (585) 402-7189 for more information. Nominations must be received by April 1.
