Citizen Lawyer Awards


Four Carolina Law alumni are among the 13 exemplary lawyers who will receive the 2013 North Carolina Bar Association Citizen Lawyer Awards at the NCBA Annual Meeting June 20-23 in Asheville. Judge Robert C. Hunter '69 (N.C. Court of Appeals, Marion), Craig Lynch '86 (Parker Poe, Charlotte), Gray Styers '89 (Styers Kemerait & Mitchell, Raleigh) and Leigh Wilkinson '85 (Ward & Smith PA, New Bern) will be honored.

The awards recognize lawyers who exemplify the ideals of a citizen lawyer and serve as role models who inspire other lawyers. In addition to their legal work, these N.C. lawyers serve their communities in numerous ways every day, including public service in appointed or elected positions, work with nonprofit charitable or political organizations, service in the military, and volunteering with youth sports programs or religious organizations.

A Carolina Law alumni reception will be held in conjunction with the NCBA annual meeting on Friday, June 21, at the Grove Park Inn.
