Charles Kettlewell Award Committee
The Charles Kettlewell Award Committee recommends that the Board confer the Charles W. Kettlewell Legal Ethics Advisor Award on a lawyer who has demonstrated excellence in and dedication to the field of legal ethics and professional responsibility, by representing, advising, educating or mentoring lawyers.

Integration and Engagement
The IEC is charged with developing policies and actions to encourage all existing members to participate in and positively impact APRL. The association is a diverse one, including in terms of personal demographic, geography, and experience levels. APRL’s appeal and long term viability is closely tied to the ability to learn from and cooperatively work with extraordinarily talented ethicists throughout the United States and abroad. So, it is important to cultivate an environment where today’s elite and tomorrow’s leaders each have voices and a meaningful opportunity to contribute.
