Every year, Nevada Legal Services celebrates and honors the work of its pro bono volunteers and supporters at the annual Champions of Justice Awards Luncheon. Separate ceremonies are held in Reno and in Las Vegas.

The Champions of Justice Awards were created to give recognition to attorneys and community leaders who significantly support the cause of access to justice for all Nevadans. The Champion of Justice Award is presented to an individual who has gone above and beyond in furtherance of equal justice. At the luncheon, awards are also presented to honor the Firm of the Year, the Pro Bono Attorney of the Year, and special recognition honorees.
