Chattanooga Bar Association Seeks Nominations For Liberty Bell Award

  • Tuesday, February 27, 2024
Each year, the Chattanooga Bar Association honors an outstanding citizen in the Chattanooga area with the “Liberty Bell Award” for public service. Nominations are currently being solicited for the 2024 award, to be presented during the annual Law Day Luncheon, which will be held this year on Wednesday, May 1.

The 2024 Law Day theme “Voices of Democracy” encourages Americans to participate in the 2024 elections by deepening their understanding of the electoral process; discussing issues in honest and civil ways; turning out to vote; and, finally, helping to move the country forward after free and fair elections.

"In this way, Americans ensure that our government remains responsive to the wishes of the people," organizers said.

The purpose of the “Liberty Bell Award” is to recognize community service that has strengthened the America system of freedom under law. In selecting the recipient of this award, the Chattanooga Bar Association considers such service as including activities which (1) promote better understanding of our Constitution and the Bill of Rights; (2) encourage a greater respect for the law and the courts; (3) stimulate a deeper sense of individual responsibility so that citizens recognize their duties as well as their rights; (4) contribute to the effective functioning of our institutions of government; and (5) foster a better understanding and appreciation of the rule of law.

Lawyers and judges are not eligible for the award; however, all other fields of endeavor are intended for the inclusion, namely education, business, sciences, communications, labor, government, religion, professions and youth organizations.
