The Lawyer Awards celebrate excellence across private practice, the public sector, commerce and industry, and the Bar. Now in their 21st year, The Lawyer Awards have established themselves as the leading awards initiative within the legal industry and are unquestionably the biggest night of the year for the legal profession.
Every year we are deluged with hundreds of entries, and I am sure that this year we at The Lawyer will once again be spending a greater part of the spring sifting through them. But we don’t just depend on the entries we are sent. The Lawyer editorial team conducts a huge research process, interviewing hundreds of lawyers and their clients to supplement the nominations.
The Lawyer was the first legal magazine to put together a senior advisory judging panel taken from the great and the good in City institutions and the media. The combination of this and The Lawyer’s own research has made these Awards the most comprehensive and incisive reflection of the commercial legal market. It’s no wonder that they are the most sought after trophies in the law.
This year there are 25 categories to enter. Click here to view the full list. Before submitting your entries please ensure that you have read the rules of entry first. Shortlisted entrants will be announced in The Lawyer in late April / early May 2015, and the winners revealed at the Awards ceremony held on Tuesday 23rd June 2015 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
As in previous years there is no fee to take part; all we ask is that your entry be accompanied by a donation to our chosen charity Mind. Please support them generously.
It only remains for us to thank all of our award sponsors, particularly our co-sponsor for the eleventh year running, Travelers. We look forward to receiving your entries.
