The Hay-Sell Pittsburgh American Inn of Court presented The Honorable Nora Barry Fischer with the Eric W. Springer Professionalism Award for 2020 in July at the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. The Springer Award was created to honor Eric W. Springer, who in 2006 was the former W. Edward Sell American Inn of Court’s first recipient of the American Inns of Court Professionalism Award for the Third Circuit. The award honors a member of the Hay-Sell Inn whose life and practice display sterling character, unquestioned integrity, and an ongoing dedication to the highest standards of the legal profession and the rule of law. Judge Fischer, a Master of the Bench in the Inn and its Counselor, was recognized for inspiring and improving the legal profession by promoting the highest standards of ethics, civility, and professionalism, and by giving back to the profession by mentoring young lawyers and law students. Fischer chose to be presented with the award at the memorial set up to honor the late Amy Reynolds Hay, U.S. Magistrate Judge, a friend who recruited Fischer to the Inn and for whom the Hay-Sell Pittsburgh American Inn of Court also is co-named.
