Nominations for the 14th Legal Aid Practitioners Group Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year (LALY) awards officially open today (1 March)!

The nomination form is here! This is your chance to highlight the amazing work of a colleague or firm making a real difference to access to justice.

The Awards celebrate legal aid lawyers who go the extra mile for their clients. For the first time, supporters of legal aid will have the opportunity to be publicly recognised as Friends of LALY16, by making a donation (via crowdfunding – here) to sponsor the Legal Aid Newcomer award, which is always one of the highlights of the evening.

This year’s LALYs will take place at etc.venues, 155 Bishopsgate London on 7th July 2016.
