HARRISBURG (Feb. 26, 2016) - The Pennsylvania Bar Association presented County Bar Recognition Awards during the 50th Annual Seminar of the Conference of County Bar Leaders, Feb. 25 – 27, at the Nittany Lion Inn, State College. Twenty-four county bar associations in Pennsylvania were honored this year for sponsoring projects that improve the legal profession, justice system and community.
The awards, which are non-competitive in nature, are presented annually by the Pennsylvania Bar Association. "Numerous projects and programs aimed at improving communities and the legal profession are successfully completed each year thanks to the voluntary efforts of lawyers involved in local bar associations," said William H. Pugh V, PBA president. "We are proud to highlight their good works and hope this recognition inspires more legal professionals to participate in future efforts."
Lycoming Law Association won an award for Wills for Heroes, Law Day and Mock Trial Competition, and the Angel Tree Project. LLA President Bob Cronin and Executive Director Michele Frey accepted the award for the Association.
