About the Awards

The Family Law Awards were launched by Jordan Publishing to recognise the important work of family lawyers, and celebrate their many successes and outstanding achievements.

This year’s Family Law Awards will be held on Wednesday 29 November at The Ballroom South Bank, one of the most exclusive event venues in London. This unique and innovative venue will make this year’s ceremony unparalleled in grandeur and excitement. This year’s (optional) black tie event will feature a sparkling drinks reception, three-course meal and the awards ceremony. A DJ, disco and cash bar will ensure that this year’s celebrations continue long into the night.

Once again we will welcome nominations in both national and regional categories. For further details see the regional Awards page

The shortlist and winners will once again be chosen by a judging panel made up of the heads of the Family Law Bar Association, Resolution and the Association of Lawyers for Children, along with Family Law editors and publishing executives.

In keeping with tradition, three of this year’s Awards will be voted for by the family law community (Clerking Team, Legal Executive or Paralegal, and Commentator Awards). A shortlist of four nominees will be selected by LexisNexis from the nominations received and voting will open on the Family Law Awards website in September.

Over the past 7 years, the Family Law Awards have firmly established themselves as a highly prestigious event, celebrating the success and achievements of family lawyers and the vital contribution that they make to society. Last year’s ceremony was attended by over 500 guests drawn from across the family law community, including solicitors’ practices, the Bar and the public sector.

We will once again proudly be supporting the National Pro Bono Centre. The charity supports a wide range of pro bono projects, helping individuals and community groups all over England and Wales.

See the list of awards, the criteria and have your say by submitting your nomination before midday Friday 9 June.
