UPPER MARLBORO, MD – Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy received The Daily Record’s 2020 “Leadership in Law” Award in recognition of her outstanding professional achievement, innovation and leadership yesterday at a virtual awards celebration.

“I am deeply honored to be named one of The Daily Record’s 2020 Leadership in Law honorees and I am humbled to be among the 26 luminaries who received this award,” Braveboy said. “This award recognizes not just those who have excelled personally, but those who have made a significant impact on the legal profession. So, this is confirmation that my office’s work to reform our criminal justice system is moving in the right direction. I am extremely proud of the work we have done to reduce our jail population, spearhead bail and youth justice reform, advance the State’s first sentencing integrity unit and expand diversion programs. Additionally, my office led in the passage of legislation to strengthen Maryland’s hate crime and strangulation laws, and mandate training requirements for Special Police Officers. What we have accomplished this first year and a half is amazing and we are just getting started.”

Leadership in Law recognizes Maryland’s legal professionals – lawyers and judges – whose dedication to their occupation and to their communities is outstanding. During this event, The Daily Record also honors up-and-coming lawyers through the Generation JD award and identifies exemplary careers through the Lifetime Achievement Award. Winners are selected by an outside panel of legal and business leaders.

Normally more than 300 people attend this prestigious celebration annually. This year, due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements and to ensure the safety of winners and other attendees, Leadership in Law was hosted virtually. Each winner was celebrated for their achievements through video storytelling. Guests had the opportunity to participate in the program with their congratulations and cheers using social media platforms.
