Jack L. Campbell Legacy Award

 

The Jack L. Campbell Legacy Award was created in 2003 and originally named the Liberty & Justice Legacy Award. During the annual Liberty & Justice Gala, the Jack L. Campbell Legacy Award is given in recognition of the recipient's dedication to the principles of liberty and justice through exemplary professional, civic, and community service. In November 2019, the KCMBF Board of Directors passed a Resolution changing the name of the Liberty & Justice Legacy Award to the Jack L. Campbell Legacy Award in honor of Jack's significant contributions to our legal community, following his death in 2019.

This year's Jack L. Campbell Legacy Award recipient is Hon. Paul C. Wilson of the Missouri Supreme Court.
