NOBA Young Lawyers’ Section CLE Program Chaired by Eric Winder Sella Receives National Recognition

The American Bar Association will award the Big Easy Bootcamp the E. Smythe Gambrell Professionalism Award. The Big Easy Bootcamp is held annually and is designed for newly admitted attorneys practicing in the New Orleans area. For the past three years, it has been chaired by Eric Winder Sella.

The ABA will present the award, along with a cash prize of $3,500.00, at the National Conference of Bar Presidents Annual Meeting in New York City this summer. The Gambrell Awards honor excellence and innovation in professionalism programs by law schools, bar associations, professionalism commissions and other law-related organizations and were established in 1991 to honor E. Smythe Gambrell, a former ABA and American Bar Foundation president. Gambrell founded the Legal Aid Society in Atlanta, where he practiced law from 1922 until his death in 1986.
