About the Fred David Gray Hall of Fame Awards

NBA President, Fred David Gray, Sr., appointed the Committee to institute the event during his presidency in 1986 in order to honor those lawyers who have been licensed to practice law for forty years or more and who have made significant contributions to the cause of justice. During the National Bar Annual Convention and Exhibits, it is appropriate to pause and recognize those among us who have by, through and within institutions in their communities, states, and this nation extracted and demanded the greater good of all.
