By Emma Ryan|05 May 2019

Lawyers Weekly, in partnership with UNSW Law, is pleased to announce that submissions are now open for this year’s Australian Law Awards.

The 2019 Australian Law Awards (ALAs) will be held on 9 August at The Star Sydney, recognising the outstanding work taking place across major legal practice areas, brilliance at the bar, legal in-house powerhouses, innovators and various firm-led pro bono programs.

The black-tie event is now in its 19th year, providing a platform for legal professionals of all ages and expertise to receive nationwide recognition for the valuable contribution they make to their place of employment, their clients and the community at large.

Speaking on behalf of UNSW Law, the principal partner of the ALAs, dean of UNSW Law Professor George Williams AO expressed his excitement for the upcoming event.

“UNSW Law is proud to be the principal partner of the Australian Law Awards. We are delighted to support Australia’s premier awards for recognising talent and achievement in the legal profession,” Professor Williams said.

“The legal industry is undergoing unprecedented change. Technology and globalisation are reshaping what it means to be a lawyer. Those who can best innovate and recognise the new opportunities on offer will thrive in the emerging legal environment.”
