The Law Day Committee of the Worcester County Bar Association, chaired by Attorney Paul Sushchyk, is accepting nominations for the Massachusetts Bar Association's Community Service Award and the Worcester County Bar Association's Liberty Bell Award.  These awards are presented as part of our Law Day celebration at our annual Law Day event.

The criteria to nominate an individual for the Community Service Award is listed below:

1.  The recipient must have performed an act or acts of outstanding public service within his/her community;
2.  The recipient must be a member of the WCBA and the MBA;
3.  The recipient must be in good "legal" standing; and
4.  The recipient must be an attorney.

Please consider nominating a colleague for this prestigious award. There are many members of the bar who devote countless hours of their time to community activities.  This annual award is one way of recognizing these individuals and their achievements.

The Law Day Committee is also accepting nominations for the Liberty Bell Award.  This award is presented to a non-lawyer to recognize his/her efforts in promoting better understating of the rule of law, encouraging greater respect for the law and the courts, and contributing to good government.  This award is also presented at our annual Law Day event.

To place a nomination we will need the name and address of the person you are nominating, which award you are making the nomination for and a description, with as much detail as possible, why the individual is being nominated.  Please submit your nomination(s) to the Law Day Committee, c/o WCBA, 370 Main Street, Worcester, MA  01608 by January 5, 2015.


Believe it or not the season is upon us.  Our Annual President's Holiday Reception has been scheduled for Thursday, December 4, 2014 from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. at Maxwell Silverman's, 25 Union Street, Worcester.  Please visit our event page for further information and to download a registration form to attend.
