MCBA Hall of Fame
Share |

The Hall of Fame was created in 2008 through the MCBA by then-president, Hon. Glenn Davis. It seeks to honor in perpetuity those remarkable individuals who have built the legal profession in this county and beyond, who have made extraordinary contributions to the law and justice, and who have distinguished themselves at the highest levels of public service.

The Hall of Fame's goal is also to preserve and foster the legal profession's history in our county and to showcase these best and brightest lights to the larger community. Their biographies and images are currently displayed in the Maricopa County Justice Museum and Learning Center, housed on the sixth floor of the Historic Maricopa County Courthouse.

At the museum, visitors can read the stories of how these individuals persevered and succeeded in shaping laws, lives, institutions and communities. The hope is that they will be an inspiration to others to pursue their dreams and make their own extraordinary contributions.


Selection and Induction

In late spring, MCBA solicits nominations of worthy candidates from the legal community. A selection committee evaluates and selects inductees in August and those selected are inducted at the MCBA Annual Meeting/Hall of Fame Luncheon in October. To date, 126 lawyers and judges have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. Find the criteria and other nomination information here.
