The Missouri Lawyers Weekly Up & Coming Awards recognize legal professionals 40 or younger, or within the first 10 years of practice, who fulfill both of the following criteria: (1) demonstrate a level of professional accomplishment, skill and leadership beyond their years, and (2) demonstrate an extraordinary commitment to the community through their volunteer service and leadership.
In addition, as part of the Up & Coming Award, Missouri Lawyers Weekly awards these special honors:

- Up & Coming Public Service, recognizing early-career professionals who fulfill the above Up & Coming criteria working in the non-profit sector
- Up & Coming Pro Bono Project, recognizing an extraordinary pro bono project led by early-career professionals
- Mentor Awards, given to more experienced legal professionals (likely older than 40 and in practice more than 10 years, such as partners, judges or professors) who have played an important role in the development of those starting out in the profession.
