This year marks the 35th year that the committee has sought individual pro bono award nominees. This year also marks the eighteenth year for both the Chief Justice Ronald D. Castille Judges Award and the Civil Legal Aid Attorney of the Year Award, given, respectively, to a judge and a legal services attorney selected by the committee in recognition of exceptional contributions to improving civil legal aid in the commonwealth.

2022 also marks the twelfth year for the Pro Bono Partner Award to a non-attorney who supports legal services to the needy. That award has been named the Danna Rich-Collins Award in honor of the long serving North Penn Legal Aid paralegal who retired this year after 46 years of service.
