We would like to take the opportunity to wish all the finalists at the LAPG Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards 2018 the very best of luck!
The awards are now in their 16th year and a great way to recognise achievement and to celebrate the very best in legal aid. There are 12 categories of finalists including a new category for 2018 in Practice Management.
In their press release, LAPG director Carol Storer says:
‘The LALYs are known for celebrating those lawyers whose skills and commitment directly transform the lives of so many vulnerable people – and rightly so. However, this year, we also wanted to recognise those practice managers who do vital work behind the scenes so firms and agencies can stay afloat and keep providing a service to clients, and whose contribution is rarely publicly acknowledged. As one nomination said, “practice managers do not get cards or flowers from clients at the end of each success”.’
The winners will be announced by Baroness Doreen Lawrence OBE at a ceremony in central London on 17 July.
A shortlist of all the finalists can be found here.
