Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP is proud to announce that it was one of 40 firms named a 2024 Beacon of Justice Award honoree by the National Legal Aid & Defender Association (NLADA) for pro bono work addressing issues related to civil and human rights. The firm will be honored at the Exemplar Awards gala, which brings together leadership from the corporate, private, civil legal aid, and public defense communities.

“The 2024 Beacon of Justice honorees have demonstrated an understanding of the interconnected nature of social categories such as race, gender, religion, sexual orientation and other characteristics that may create interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage,” NLADA stated in a press release announcing winners. “Our honorees have worked to address these complex challenges in their pro bono practice.”

NLADA is America’s oldest and largest nonprofit association devoted to excellence in the delivery of legal services to those who cannot afford counsel. They provide advocacy, guidance, information, training and technical assistance for members of the equal justice community, especially those working in public defense and civil legal aid.

The firm's Pro Bono Committee is sponsoring the Exemplar Awards Gala on June 6, 2024, where the firm will be recognized.
