Our flagship awards programme is returning for its 4th year.
The SLS Legal Awards were introduced in 2018 to recognise the exceptional legal talent within the Surrey Law Society membership and celebrate the outstanding commitment to the profession across the county. Last year’s ceremony, our biggest yet, saw 250 attendees come together to recognise the achievement of peers and colleagues, who won awards in a range of categories and enjoyed a fantastic evening of celebration. You can view the highlights video of our 2021 ceremony here.
This year we are inviting nominations in the following 11 categories, including a brand new ‘Employment Lawyer of the Year’ award, and would encourage any member to nominate themselves or a colleague before the closing date, Thursday 28 April 2022.
The nomination process couldn’t be simpler, you need only download the appropriate nomination form shown below, review the criteria for the category selected and write your entry with a maximum of 1,000 words. Once you’ve completed the entry, use the handy criteria checklist at the end of the document to ensure you’ve covered everything and submit this with any supporting documentation you wish to send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would love to see entries from across the membership, from sole practitioners to large firms, and members are entitled to nominate for more than one category if they feel they meet the criteria for each. The only thing to remember is that nominees must be members of the Society to be eligible, so if you’re not sure who within your firm is listed under your membership, please don’t hesitate to contact the SLS office for clarification on this, or to sign up any colleagues not currently subscribed so that they are eligible.
Could it be you? Do you have what it takes to be our Lawyer or Law Firm of the Year? Will your firm, one of your colleagues or even you be one of our winners?
