The Justinian Society and the Louis D. Brandeis Law Society Foundation are seeking nominations for the Lifetime Achievement Award in Memory of Marvin Comisky and Judge G. Fred DiBona, which, if a nominee is selected, will be awarded at the Philadelphia Bar Association's Bench-Bar & Annual Conference on Friday, Oct. 17, at Borgata in Atlantic City, N.J.

A charitable contribution will be made on behalf of the recipient to an organization of the recipient's choice.
