If you know anyone that qualifies for this award who are not members of BACDL, have them join the organization. For Public Defender’s and RCC the price is as low as we can make it, Free. For everyone else the price is $60.00. This event is only possible with the support of our members and our board of directors that volunteer their time with very little reward in return. It is an amazing event that gets better every year. If you have not renewed for 2016, please renew.
