Nominations are now open for the annual LawWorks pro bono awards, including a specific category supported by the Junior Lawyers Division.

The awards recognise and celebrate achievement in legal pro bono undertaken by organisations and individuals, and the commitment of the legal sector to positively impact individuals and communities.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Tuesday 3 December.

The Junior Lawyers Division Pro Bono Award recognises the pro bono work undertaken by a trainee or qualified solicitor with less than five year’s post-qualification experience.

Current students are not eligible for this award, as there are separate awards for students through the LawWorks and Attorney General Student Award.

The deadline for nominations is midnight on Wednesday 9 October.
