The deadline for nominations for the Family Law Awards 2018 has been extended to midday on Friday 15 June due to popular demand and school holidays.
There are 19 award categories to choose from, including Commentator, Pro Bono Lawyer, Chartered Legal Executive and regional Law Firm and Chambers Awards. Nominate yourself, a friend or colleague, or a firm or chambers via the straightforward form at familylawawards.com.
Over the past 8 years, the Family Law Awards have firmly established themselves as a highly prestigious event, celebrating the success and achievements of family lawyers and the vital contribution that they make to society. The 2018 ceremony will take place on Wednesday 28 November.
The shortlist and winners will once again be chosen by a judging panel made up of the heads of the Family Law Bar Association, Resolution and the Association of Lawyers for Children, along with Family Law editors and publishing executives. The Pro Bono Award winner will be decided by key figures from the pro bono community.
In keeping with tradition, three of this year’s Awards will be voted for by the family law community (Clerking Team, Legal Executive, and Commentator Awards). A shortlist of four nominees will be selected by LexisNexis from the nominations received and voting will open on the Family Law Awards website in September.
