deadline for nominations for the Family
Law Awards 2015 has been extended to Monday, 18 May. Nominate someone now at
The awards were set up
in 2011 by Jordan Publishing to
highlight the important work done by family lawyers while bringing the whole
profession together for an enjoyable evening.
Since the inaugural Family Law Awards,
interest has grown significantly with lots of nominations submitted by lawyers
and clients. So far solicitors and law firms have received the most
nominations, with fewer nominations received for barristers, chartered legal
executives and local authority teams.
Jordan Publishing will once again be
proudly supporting The
National Pro Bono Centre
. The charity supports a wide range of pro
bono projects, helping individuals and community groups all over England and
Wales. Trustees from the National Pro Bono Centre will be judging the award for
the Family Law Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year.
There are 16 award
categories this year, including the newly added Clerking Team of the Year Award,
to recognise the vital role each team plays to their chambers and their
instructing solicitors alike.
Three of the awards will
be decided by the family law community, the shortlist and winners for the
remaining awards will be chosen by a judging panel made up of the heads of the key family law practitioners' associations, ie the Family Law Bar
Association, Resolution, Association of Lawyers for Children and new to the
panel CiLEX, along with Family Law
editors and Jordan Publishing
