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. 
 
Charles H. Dorsey, Jr. Mentor Award
The Bar Association of Baltimore City created the Charles H. Dorsey, Jr. Award to recognize lawyers who mentors other attorneys and show an impact to the law community. The Award is presented to a nominee who 1) served as a longtime mentor or teacher of other lawyers; 2) by example has demonstrated a commitment to the community of lawyers by following the precept that the practice of law is a “noble and learned profession”; and 3) always worked to communicate, with clients and colleagues at the bar, the highest standard of conduct to fulfill the ideals of our society and our profession.
 
Paul A. Dorf Memorial ADR Award
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.
