Submissions flooding in for ALAs

Submissions flooding in for ALAs


The Australian Law Awards is set to see a phenomenal amount of submissions this year.

Now in its 17th year, the premier legal event of the year celebrates individual and team excellence in the business of law.

From the profession’s most senior ranks to its rising stars, everyone has their chance to be recognised at this event.

This year, Lawyers Weekly has 15 individual award categories on offer, including everything from Academic of the Year and Managing Partner of the Year to Regional/Suburban Lawyer of the Year and Young Gun of the Year.

The event will also showcase 11 team awards which aim to uncover those teams who stand out in their particular practice areas.

In addition, The Australian Law Awards has seven firm awards to give out this year. This includes the hotly contested Law Firm of the Year award, as well as the Innovator of the Year award.

This year Lawyers Weekly has also added the additional category of the NewLaw Firm of the Year award, which pays tribute to the firm that is challenging the traditional law firm model.

The Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards is our biggest awards program of the year, boasting the achievements of the full spectrum of the legal profession.

This year’s event will be held on Friday, 1 September, at the Event Centre, The Star Sydney.
