Nominations are now open for the Law Society’s Excellence Awards 2019, including the award for Junior Lawyer of the Year.

Excellence Awards 2019 - nominations now open

For the Junior Lawyer of the Year award, the Law Society is looking for demonstrable evidence of an individual who has an exceptional standard of work as well as great dedication in their role.

They will be excelling in their role rather than just doing a good job, or will be making a significant contribution to voluntary or pro-bono schemes rather than simply assisting.

The winner of this award will be raising their own profile - or their team’s/firm’s - and bringing insight, flair, imagination and hard work to everything they do.

The award is open to LPC students, LPC graduates (for example, those working as paralegals), trainee solicitors and solicitors qualified for up to five years.

If the nominee is a solicitor they will be eligible to enter this category if they are qualified five years and 364 days as of 1 February 2019 (the date nominations opened).

LPC students and LPC graduates who are shortlisted may be asked to provide confirmation of their LPC attainment.

The deadline for nominations has been extended to Friday 17 May.
