The deadline to submit a nomination for this year's Family Law Awards is 4 May 2012. Submit your nomination now through the Family Law Awards website.
The awards ceremony will be held on 10 October 2012 at the prestigious London Hilton hotel on Park Lane, Mayfair.
The number of awards available to win this year has almost doubled from 8 to 15. There are now three award categories for barristers and solicitors respectively to reflect their seniority: partner, associate, and young solicitors, and; QC, junior, and young barristers. We have also added another three awards: International Family Lawyer of the Year, Family Law Legal Executive of the Year, and Family Pro Bono Lawyer of the year.
The awards were set up to highlight the important work done by family lawyers whilst bringing the whole profession together for an enjoyable evening.
The shortlist and winners will be chosen by a judging panel made up of the heads of the three family law practitioners' associations, ie the Family Law Bar Association, Resolution and the Association of Lawyers for Children, along with Family Law editors and publishing executives.
