Sidley Austin LLP was announced as the ABA’s recipient of the 2007 ABA Pro Bono Publico Award. The firm was honored in recognition of its Capital Litigation Project, an on-going effort in which Sidley attorneys have been representing death row inmates on a pro bono basis since 2005. Working alongside organizations such as the Equal Justice Initiative of Alabama, the firm has contributed more than 75,000 hours to such matters in 2006 alone.
