The Manchester Legal Awards are open to all. Whether you're a trainee or partner, barristers' chambers, small or large law firm, there is a category for you. We encourage entries from individuals, teams, chambers and legal practices of all sizes and specialities, provided they have an office within the Greater Manchester area.
The short-listed nominees will be notified by Fran Eccles-Bech, Chief Executive of Manchester Law Society, and invited to be interviewed by the judges on Friday 18 January 2019.
As you will appreciate, it is logistically difficult to get all of the judges together on one day so Friday 18 January 2019 is the only date available for interviews. Therefore, if you have entered, please keep this date free.
Please nominate a lawyer or legal professional who you think has made an unrivalled impact and lasting contribution to the legal services market in the region during their lifetime.
Using up to 1,000 words, set out why you think your nominated person deserves to be recognised. Your submission should consider such qualities as their pioneering business flair, the values and ethical standards they uphold, why they are an inspiration and why they will have made a long lasting impact on the legal community.
The Council of the Manchester Law Society will review all nominations and announce the recipient at the Awards Dinner.
