ABOUT NATION’S BEST ADVOCATES: 40 LAWYERS UNDER 40℠ This year, the National Bar Association and IMPACT are producing the inaugural Nation’s Best Advocates (N.B.A.): 40 Lawyers Under 40℠ at the 85th Annual Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. The purpose of this prestigious award is to recognize talented individuals (age 40 and under) within the African American legal community who have achieved prominence and distinction in their fields. Successful nominees have demonstrated a strong commitment to empowering, uplifting, and advocating for the African American community. Nominees represent a cross-section of legal professionals: solo practitioners, government lawyers, judges, academicians, corporate counsels, young elected officials, and other lawyers who are using their law degree in innovative ways. Winners are chosen based on achievement, innovation, vision, leadership, and legal community involvement.

ELIGIBLE NOMINEES ARE: • Duly licensed attorneys in good standing in at least one jurisdiction; • 40 years of age and under as of August 2010; • NOT eligible: Members of the National Bar Association Board of Governors, National Bar Association‐YLD Board Members, Event Host Committee Members, and National Bar Association Staff. The profiles of eligible nominees are posted on WWW.NATIONSBESTADVOCATES.COM in advance of the gala. Individuals will be able to vote for the 40 under 40 based on excellence in the aforementioned values. All nominations will remain confidential absent the express consent of the nominator and the nominee. Only award recipients will be notified. |4

ABOUT NATIONAL BAR ASSOCIATION Founded in Des Moines, Iowa by twelve African American legal pioneers, the National Bar Association (NBA) has been in the forefront of the struggle for equal justice since 1925. As the nation’s oldest and largest organization of predominantly African American attorneys, the NBA membership encompasses lawyers, judges, law professors, administrators and law students. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NBA has 88 affiliate chapters in the United States and Virgin Islands; and seven national divisions which include the Judicial Council, Women Lawyers, and Law Students Divisions. The NBA has international members and affiliate bar chapters in Canada, Cote d’Ivoire, England, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Puerto Rico, South Africa, and Uganda.

The NBA’s network of over 40,000 consists of some of the nation’s top attorneys and business people. As executives and decision makers, the NBA’s constituency controls millions in procurement and consumer dollars. While some are corporate or government managers, many represent large to small firms and

solo practitioners interested in a wide variety of products and services. Whether in the public or private sector, African American attorneys are constantly seeking opportunities for professional and personal growth.
