The Law Society Excellence Awards are back for 2018 and are going to be the biggest and best yet. They showcase excellence demonstrated by outstanding firms and individuals across the legal profession in England and Wales.

This year your chances of recognition have increased as several new categories have been introduced - including Law Firm of the Year for Small, Medium and Large firms, as well as Sole Practitioner of the Year. The new awards are specifically designed to champion the best and brightest firms of all shapes and size

The Gazette is looking for legal professionals who are ‘influential, inspirational and in the ­public eye’ for its annual Gazette Legal Personality of the Year award. The award aims to recognise those who have made an ‘outstanding public contribution’ to the profession. Nominations for the Gazette accolade, which is one of the Law Society’s Excellence Awards, must be received by Friday 25 May.
