With over a month remaining until the event, Lawyers Weekly can confirm that the Australian Law Awards has officially sold out.
Over 900 members of the legal profession, and its supporters, will gather at The Star, Sydney on 9 August to mark this year’s annual Australian Law Awards.
The biggest event on the Lawyers Weekly calendar, the Australian Law Awards seek to recognise outstanding work being done across major legal practice areas, brilliance at the bar, legal in-house powerhouses, innovators and various firm-led pro bono programs.
In addition, the awards pay tribute to individual excellence among the country’s best legal scholars, students, corporate young guns and support professionals, leaving no stone unturned.
The black-tie event is now in its 19th year, providing a platform for legal professionals of all ages and expertise levels to receive nationwide recognition for the valuable contribution they make to their place of employment, their clients and the community at large.
“Lawyers Weekly is delighted to be hosting the Australian Law Awards for the 19th consecutive year,” said Lawyers Weekly editor Emma Ryan.
“The finalists represent some of the best and brightest in the business of law, and it is our honour to be able to provide a platform that showcases their incredible achievements.”
Speaking on behalf of UNSW Law, the principal partner of the Australian Law Awards, dean of UNSW Law Professor George Williams AO expressed his excitement about the upcoming event.
“UNSW Law is proud to be the principal partner of the Australian Law Awards. We are delighted to support Australia’s premier awards for recognising talent and achievement in the legal profession,” Professor Williams said.
“The legal industry is undergoing unprecedented change. Technology and globalisation are reshaping what it means to be a lawyer. Those who can best innovate and recognise the new opportunities on offer will thrive in the emerging legal environment.”
