Hogan Lovells is presented with 2013 Beacon of Justice Award from NLADA
National Legal Aid & Defender Association (NLADA) has presented Hogan Lovells with its 2013 Beacon of Justice Award.
At its annual Exemplar Award Dinner in Washington DC, NLADA recognised Hogan Lovells’ lawyers for devoting considerable time and resources to delivering on the mandate of Gideon v Wainwright, which 50 years ago established the right to counsel for people accused of a crime and facing a loss of liberty.
The Beacon of Justice Award honors law firms for their accomplishments in advancing Gideon’s principles through law reform or individual representation.
