The top winner of this year’s Leadership in Law Awards will be announced at the celebration event May 16 at the BWI Hilton. The honoree will be determined by a vote of this year’s Leadership in Law winners.
In addition, The Daily Record ‘s Leadership in Law Awards include honors recognizing up-and-coming legal professionals through Generation J.D. and legal professionals with exemplary careers through the Lifetime Achievement Award.
