The day has finally arrived! The LLG Awards 2018 are taking place this evening at the stunning Waldorf Hotel, London and we are full of excitement as the venue takes shape and rehearsals begin. But it's not just glitz and glamour which makes this event. It's really about you, our valued members, and the amazing work you undertake day in, day out in difficult, challenging and politically charged environments.

Too often the essential, life changing work of local government lawyers is overlooked by the wider legal sector. LLG exists to give local government lawyers a voice and to champion the work you do in making a difference across the communities we serve, for the public good. The LLG Awards are all about celebrating the very real impact that you make, the innovation you deliver, and the integrity and care that you show in your work.

It wouldn't be possible to bring you the awards without the sponsorship and backing of our colleagues throughout the legal, tech and knowledge sector. To that end, LLG extends a heartfelt thank you to our sponsors who deserve, at the very least, a mention here:- IKEN, DPS software, Weightmans, Anthony Collins, Trowers and Hamlins, ADSO, Local Government Lawyer, LLG Legal Training, Thomson Reuters.

For those of you unable to make it- you can follow all the news on our live twitter feed throughout the evening. Follow us at @LLGlegal and view all posts using the hashtag #LLGAwards18

Good luck to all the finalists!

Best wishes
