The NLADA Exemplar Award Dinner brings together over 500 equal justice advocates, including private attorneys, general counsel and public interest lawyers, to pay tribute to those lawyers who labor tirelessly to improve the quality of representation for people who are unable to pay for legal assistance and to salute outstanding individuals who set an example by their dedication, achievement, leadership and vision.

In addition to the Exemplar Award, other equal justice champions will be honored at the event. The Kutak-Dodds Prizes will be awarded to a civil legal aid lawyer and a public defense attorney for outstanding service in providing legal services to the disadvantaged.
