Applications now open for the 2013 Award
Established to recognise the unique and valuable contribution that local government solicitors make to their authorities and their communities, this award has helped to support and promote the values that underpin their work. Now in its ninth year, Trowers & Hamlins inaugurated and has sponsored the award since its inception and is proud to continue to do so.
Recognition amongst your peers
The award is open to any local government solicitor who has up to 10 years post qualification experience and the winner will be announced at the SLG Annual Dinner on Friday 22nd March 2013 at the University of Warwick. The award provides recognition throughout England and Wales both for the winner and their authority.
In addition to the award, the winner will also receive a Red Letter Days experience of their choice. Special commendations have been awarded in the past where judges have felt that more than one applicant is worthy of recognition.
How to enter
Nominations can be made by the applicant, their manager, a client officer or member, or other local authority representative who recognises the important and extraordinary contribution made by the applicant. The judges look for evidence of innovation, material impact on an authority’s performance, best practice and/or contribution to raising the profile of local government lawyers.
