Nominations open for Law Society Excellence Awards
The Gazette has opened nominations for its Legal Personality of the Year accolade, one of a suite of Law Society Excellence Awards designed to recognise the profession’s most outstanding and dynamic practitioners.
This is the sixth year of the Society’s Excellence awards, which include: Solicitor Advocate of the Year, Junior Lawyer of the Year, Solicitor of the Year (In-house), Solicitor of the Year (Private Practice) and Legal Executive of the Year.
A new category, Excellence in Conveyancing Practice, has been added for the 2012 awards, which is open to Conveyancing Quality Scheme-accredited practices only. The award will be made to the firm that best demonstrates its commitment to the values of the scheme.
The Gazette is seeking nominations for individuals who have made an outstanding public contribution to the legal profession in the past 12 months that has resonated in the wider world. Last year’s prize was awarded to Jo Cooper for his outspoken championing of solicitor advocacy.
