It’s time to nominate – Family Law Awards 2015

Date:9 MAR 2015
Third slide

Jordan Publishing is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the fifth annual Family Law Awards. Ensure you have your say, place your nomination here.

Following the success of the 2014 Awards when over 430 family lawyers flowed into the famous Brewery, we have chosen to move the Awards to a new and larger venue. The awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, 8 October 2015 at the Grand Connaught Rooms, one of London's most striking and stylish venues.

This year we are pleased to add the Clerking Team of the Year Award to recognise the vital role each team plays to their chambers and their instructing solicitors alike.

The shortlist and winners will 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.

In keeping with tradition, three of this year's Awards will be voted for by the family law community (Clerking Team, Legal Executive or Paralegal, and Commentator Awards). A shortlist of four nominees will be selected by Jordan Publishing from the nominations received and voting will open on the Family Law Awards website in July.
