The National Trial Lawyers is honored to announce that Top 100 Executive Committee member, Morris Dees, has been chosen to receive the American Bar Association’s highest award, the coveted ABA Medal. Morris will accept the award on August 7 at this year’s American Bar Association’s annual meeting in Chicago. The rare ABA Medal is only awarded to the lawyer or lawyers the ABA’s Board of Governors deem to have dedicated exceptional service to the legal community. Morris is best known as a zealous Civil Rights advocate and as a co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Throughout the years, Morris’ fearless role as a Civil Rights lawyer and activist has played a pivotal part in the integration of public institutions and the demise of white supremacist hate groups. The National Trial Lawyers proudly congratulates Morris on this great achievement. For more information, please visit:
