Presidential Award
In 1996, the Bar Association of Baltimore City established its prestigious Presidential Awards. These awards are presented annually to “unsung heroes” (one of whom must be a member of the YLD) who 1) selflessly undertake community, civic and/or charitable service which brings honor to the profession, and/or 2) who have devoted time and energy to the Bar Association of Baltimore City through substantial work on BABC committees, or other exemplary service to the Association. 
 
Brent-Mitchell Award
Building on the legacies of Margaret Brent and Juanita Jackson Mitchell, the Bar Association of Baltimore City has created the Brent-Mitchell Award to recognize women lawyers and judges who have surmounted substantial barriers to achieve professional excellence. The Award is presented to a nominee who 1) exemplifies the pioneer spirit of Margaret Brent and Juanita Jackson Mitchell; 2) has achieved a high degree of success in the field of law; and 3) has paved the way for women in the law.

In 2012, the BABC established the Paul A. Dorf Memorial ADR Award. This award is presented to a person in the Baltimore Metropolitan Area who has substantially contributed to the furtherance of the goals of alternative dispute resolution (mediation and arbitration) to resolve legal conflicts.
