The Lawyer launched its first-ever HR Awards in 2006 to celebrate excellence in the effective deployment of HR strategy in the legal world - an issue underpinning some of the biggest stories of the last two years.
The issue continues to dominate law firms' and in-house legal teams' agendas as the battle to recruit and retain staff intensifies.
The categories are varied, covering the full range of HR activity, from trainee recruitment to effective retention.
There were weeks of sifting through the submissions, culminating in a judging day earlier this month.
The Lawyer editor Catrin Griffiths co-chaired the judging panel with YouGov Consulting managing director Andy Brown.
The other judges were Vernon Bryce, the head of HR consultancy Kenexa; Charles Cotton, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development(CIPD) adviser at Reward CIPD; Debi O'Donovan, editorial director of Employee Benefits; and Martin Finn, the managing director of education consultancy EdComms.
