The Arkansas Bar Association is seeking nominations for its first ever Arkansas Legal Hall of Fame. Nominations are due March 16, 2020.
Launching this year, the Legal Hall of Fame will honor Arkansas’ greatest lawyers, most revered institutions, most treasured traditions and other “legends of the Bar.”
