Candidates must:

    • They have demonstrated exceptional qualities of leadership in the profession, including in the conduct of the affairs of the Canadian Bar Association, the Law Society of British Columbia and other legal organizations.
    • They have done outstanding work in the fields of legal education or legal scholarship.

Nominations are confidential and can be made by anyone other than the candidate themselves or members of their immediate family.
