Event Description
Save the Date! The Project will hold its annual Volunteer Recognition & Awards Dinner during National Pro Bono Week on Thursday, October 26, 2017, at 5:30pm at the historic Decatur House in Washington, DC.

Every fall, the Project celebrates volunteer lawyers at its Volunteer Recognition & Awards Event. Pro bono firms are nominated by their colleagues for exceptional service to death row prisoners and honored with the Exceptional Service Award.


The Project is proud to present the 2017 Exceptional Service Awards to Hogan Lovells and O'Melveny & Myers.


The Project also recognizes the extraordinary efforts of individual lawyers with the John Paul Stevens Guiding Hand of Counsel Award, which was first presented to Justice Stevens in 2011. This year, the award will be presented to the six lawyers from the Capital Habeas Unit of the Federal Public Defender Office for the Eastern District of Arkansas: Scott Braden, Julie Vandiver, John Williams, Jamie Giani, April Golden, and Jason Kearney.


The awards will be presented at our Volunteer Recognition & Awards Event on October 26th. We look forward to honoring these extremely deserving recipients and thanking all of our volunteer lawyers for their dedication and service!
