Congratulations to Cook County Assistant Public Defender Camille Durham.  She is the fall

2018 recipient of the Illinois Public Defender Association Bruce Jacobs Award. This award is presented

by the Illinois Public Defender Association to an Assistant Public Defender or an Assistant Appellate

Defender whose efforts embody the core values of the Public Defender Movement in the United States

and the State of Illinois.  This award recognizes the efforts, whether on a single case or over the

course of the previous twelve months, which epitomize the selfless dedication to the constitutional

precepts which form the basis of the criminal defense of the indigent accused in Illinois.
