Stephanie Perraton, President of the Birmingham Law Society said about the launch “After recently being appointed President of the Birmingham Law Society, I am delighted that one of my first acts is to launch Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards 2022. These Awards recognise the remarkable legal talent we enjoy within the Midlands. From our award for the trainee solicitor of the year all the way through to our award for the top law firm, each award recognises the talent and hard work put in by individuals and organisations alike.
I am particularly proud to announce that this year we have two new awards this year, firstly an E&DI award, recognising our member’s efforts towards achieving equality and diversity across the profession. Promoting equality and diversity is a key objective of mine for my presidential year, and launching this award is a reflection on both mine and the society’s commitment to this goal. Our second award is recognising the important role that In House Counsel have within the profession, it is open to individual’s and teams alike.”
The legal awards cover 12 award categories and all nominations are judged by an experienced panel of independent judges, brought together from the world of law, business and academia. The deadline for nominations is Monday 10th January 2022 with the awards taking place on Thursday 31st March 2022.
