* The e.law Asia Pacific Practice Manager of the Year Award

* The e.law Asia Pacific Box Breaker Award

* The Integrity Legal Talent Manager of the Year Award

* The Pro Bono Initiative of the Year Award

The awards will showcase the best legal individuals and legal teams who can prove a commitment to best practice, leadership, innovation and community participation.

Entry is free, with nominations closing 15 June. The winners will be announced on 5 August - in line with the 500th edition of Lawyers Weekly.
