Griffin Bell Award for Courageous Advocacy

In 1964 the American College of Trial Lawyers Griffin Bell Award for Courageous Advocacy was established. The Award may be made to any lawyer, whether or not a Fellow of the College.

The particular courageous advocacy for which the recipient is selected need not have been rendered during the year in which the selection is made.

The Award is in the form of a scroll making appropriate reference to the particular representation or cause involved.
