The entry form covers the following areas:

  • Background – your company and your team (750 words)
    • Our judges will be looking for not only how your company is positioned within its sector, and any unique challenges this poses, but also how your team operates within your business. We want to understand how the outstanding individuals in your team made an impact over the last 18 months, so please be as detailed as possible when outlining the team’s structure and roles.
  • Your team’s story in 2020 (750 words)
    • Judges will be looking for examples of why your team has had a stellar year – think about any specific challenges you faced, and how you overcame them. Don’t forget to make clear how the legal function contributes to and underpins the business’s strategy
  • Additional materials
    • You should use this section to upload any testimonials that add weight to your entry, and any charts or other visual aids that illustrate your work.

There is a confidential information section on the form: We fully appreciate that some of the information you include in your entry may be sensitive.
