"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do…." Mark Twain American writer and humourist (1835-1910)

The LLG Awards 2020 are well and truly upon us and you still have time to put in a one sheet, bullet point nomination setting out the achievements of yourself, your team or your entire legal department. It really is straightforward and will take 15-20 minutes of time. Whilst every minute is precious and your work-load heavy; the sense of achievement, positive reinforcement and acknowledgement by your peers of the valuable and creative work ongoing across the regions makes a nomination an essential investment for your legal team. Previous winners have capitalised on their awards by enhancing their reputation with clients and members, bidding for work with other authorities, applying for other national awards and even holding a presentation ceremony with the Mayor! From an individual point of view, the boost to your CV and career enhancement cannot be overstated. If that isn't enough the Awards night itself is fast paced and exciting with plenty of opportunity to let your hair down.

There are 6 categories this year with criteria to suit all areas of legal practice; Governance, People, Place, Junior Lawyer, Individual Lawyer and Team of the Year. The Awards will be held at the black- tie dinner of the LLG Spring 2020 Conference (formerly Weekend School) in Birmingham on 2nd April 2020. The reduced number of categories this year enables all in attendance to experience the tension and enjoyment of winners being announced without taking away from the sumptuous dinner and dancing which follows. Plus, those attending the LLG Spring 2020 Conference in full receive complimentary attendance to the Awards Night.
