Americans for Immigrant Justice accept the 2019 Doyle Award from former Foundation president Kathleen McLeroy.

The Paul Doyle Children’s Advocacy Award honors Paul C. Doyle, Founding Director of the Foundation’s Legal Assistance for the Poor and Law Student Assistance Grant Programs (1991 to 2013) in recognition of his commitment to high-quality legal representation of Florida’s low-income children; for encouraging grantee programs to collaborate across geographic regions in order to bring the benefit of legal advocacy to low-income children regardless of their county of residence; for his strong and consistent support of Florida Bar Foundation Legal Assistance for the Poor and Law Student Assistance grantees; and for a career dedicated to promoting high-quality legal representation of the poor.

The award recognizes and encourages systemic legal advocacy on behalf of low-income children by Florida Bar Foundation Children’s Legal Services grantees. The award is presented once every two years at The Florida Bar Foundation Annual Reception and Dinner during The Florida Bar Annual Convention.
