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
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.
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.
Tickets are now available to
purchase from the Awards website either individually at £125 + VAT or you
