Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards 2019

Anthony Gold are delighted to be sponsoring the 17th Legal Aid Practitioners Group Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards.

There are 12 awards in total including Children’s Rights, Public Law, Mental Health, Access to Justice through IT, and Criminal Defence.

Legal Aid Practitioners Group CEO Chris Minnoch says:

”The LALYs continue to play a vital role in recognising and celebrating the lawyers who go the extra mile to achieve life-changing results for their clients. Just last week, for example, we saw the winner of our 2018 Public Lawyer award, Harriet Wistrich, break new legal ground with her victory in the appeal court on behalf of her client Sally Challen.

I would encourage everyone who knows a lawyer who deserves recognition for their work – whether in the highest or the lower courts; whether by bringing once-in-a-lifetime, precedent-setting cases, or by being at the legal aid coalface day in, day out – to nominate them for a LALY award this year.

We want to hear about their achievements and to ensure such vital contributions to access to justice are acknowledged.”

The nomination period runs from 4 March – 30 April with winners to be announced and receive their awards on 10 July at a Central London awards ceremony presented by Baroness Helena Kennedy QC.

The 2019 award categories in full are:

  • Children’s Rights
  • Criminal Defence
