The Municipal Court Practice Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association requests nominations for its annual Municipal Court Practice Award. Nominations may be for a New Jersey lawyer, prosecutor or retired judge in good standing who has evidenced:
1. Public service in advancing the development of municipal court practice in New Jersey in the preceding year or cumulatively as lifetime achievement in the field.
2. Dedication to the development of municipal court practice by publishing, teaching, and service on municipal court practice committees.
3. Commitment to prolonged and sustained pro bono representation or pro bono service in order to positively effect the administration of justice in municipal courts.
4. Leadership in municipal court practice activities on a state, county, and local bar association level.
No nomination goes without formal recognition by the section. Because the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) does not permit an active judge or court employee to receive the award, the committee will not consider such nominations.
Nominations must be in writing and include both your and your nominee’s name, street address, phone, fax and email address along with detailed reasons in support of the nomination. Nominations are confidential and may be sent by mail, fax, or email, and must be received no later than 5 p.m. April 21 to:
