Call for ABA Death Penalty Representation Project Nominations:
The ABA Death Penalty Representation Project is soliciting nominations for the law firm Exceptional Service Award to be given at its annual dinner this September 2019.  The due date for nominations is May 24th.  Unlike some awards, you don’t need to have a binder full of materials in support of the nominations; I know that sometimes these nominations can be quite a task to pull together so you can submit a reasonable packet of materials (the year that our firm won, we had the nomination of a Public Defender and two support letters).  If your firm has won the award in the last few years, you probably will not be prioritized for an award.  Also, the other award that will be presented this year is for an individual public defender – so if you/your firm has worked with a career death penalty defender who you would like to nominate – we would appreciate you taking the time to submit a nomination. If you are interested, please contact Emily Olson-Gault at  [email protected]  OR you can contact me and I will forward the nomination form. 
 Many thanks!!  Susie
