The Law Society Awards 2021 has opened for entries, the Society announced today, inviting submissions in 20 categories, including Gazette Legal Personality of the Year. New awards introduced in 2020 are designed to showcase best practice in practice management, practice promotion, the rule of law, and risk and compliance.

Announcing this year’s event, the Society said: 'There has never been a more important time to celebrate the hard work, skill and dedication of solicitors in England and Wales, to champion the rule of law and to defend the fundamental right to justice for all.'

The deadline for entries is 21 May and a shortlist will be announced in July. The awards - formally named the Law Society Excellence Awards - will be presented at a ceremony on 7 October.
