For years, the most glittering evening in the legal market calendar has been The Lawyer Awards each June. From September this year, it’ll have some competition.
As we report today, this year will see the launch of the inaugural The Lawyer Management awards, an event at which some of the legal market’s most-talented but generally unsung non-lawyer professionals will be celebrated.
These new awards will cap a full day’s conference focused on the most topical issues and challenges facing law firms, barristers chambers and the senior support professionals within them. In short, this day in September will encapsulate all of the key themes that this email and the stories it highlights features throughout the year.
The Lawyer Management awards is an extension of our increased editorial focus on the support side of the legal market, a shift designed to reflect the increasingly pivotal role played by non lawyers as law firms become law businesses.
The awards will be the day to celebrate that reality.
