Nominations now open for the Family Law Awards 2017

Nominations now open for the Family Law Awards 2017

This year’s Family Law Awards will be held on Wednesday 29 November at The Ballroom South Bank, one of the most exclusive event venues in London. This unique and innovative venue will make this year’s ceremony unparalleled in grandeur and excitement. Have your say on up to 19 awards.

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.

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 LexisNexis from the nominations received and voting will open on the Family Law Awards website in September.

Over the past seven 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. Last year’s ceremony was attended by over 500 guests drawn from across the family law community, including solicitors’ practices, the Bar and the public sector.

We will once again proudly be 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.

This year’s (optional) black tie event will feature a sparkling drinks reception, three-course meal and the awards ceremony. A DJ, disco and cash bar will ensure that this year’s celebrations continue long into the night.

See the awards website for the list of awards, the criteria and to have your say by submitting your nominations before midday Friday 9 June.
