Corporate lawyers, government lawyers and young in-house lawyers will all be recognised by the awards.
“These are truly in-house awards, being judged by in-house lawyers for in-house lawyers,” said Trish Hyde (pictured), the CEO of ACLA.

At the 2011 ACLA awards, Stretch Kontelj, Specavers’ legal director for the Asia-Pacific, won the blue-ribbon Corporate Lawyer of the Year Award.

Other award winners last year included Glenn Owbridge, from the Australian Government Solicitor, who won the Government Lawyer of the Year, and Lisa Chan from Curtin University, who was the recipient of the Young Lawyer Achiever of the Year Award.

The in-house teams from Incitec Pivot Limited and Thiess John Holland won the respective Large and Small Legal Team of the Year awards.
