Submit nominations for Scoutt Prize by March 24

Updated: Mar 21

Do you know someone who is an exceptional legal services attorney in DC? If so, consider nominating them for the 2023 Jerrold Scoutt Prize.

The Scoutt Prize recognizes outstanding lawyers who work full time or have spent much of their careers working full time at DC nonprofits that provide direct, hands-on legal services to financially disenfranchised or otherwise in vulnerable situations. The DC Bar Foundation encourages you to nominate attorneys who have demonstrated a high degree of skill in representing their clients and a high degree of compassion.

We will accept nominations through March 24 at 5:00 PM. The Foundation will reconsider nominations made for the 2021 and 2022 Prizes. However, those who submitted nominations in those years are encouraged to update their nomination materials. The Prize will be presented during the DC Bar Foundation’s Fall Reception, tentatively planned for November 8.
