It’s shaping up to be another record year at the Yorkshire Legal Awards, taking place this year on 16 October at New Dock Hall in Leeds. With just over a fortnight left for nominations to be made, we’ve once again been seriously impressed with the quantity and quality of entries we’ve received. The entries represent the breadth and depth of the legal community in Yorkshire, from trainees to managing partners, from boutique niche firms to barristers’ chambers – and they all tell their own impressive and inspiring stories. While we don’t have any input in the judging process itself, on the strength of what we’ve seen so far we can certainly say that there are going to be some very worthy winners in 2014. Nevertheless, we’d urge anyone who hasn’t got round to entering to do so all the same: even if you think you have no chance of winning, the single biggest thing you can do to help your chances is to put a nomination in! A full list of categories and an online entry form are available here. Tickets for the evening are also starting to sell swiftly. To guarantee you can join in with the celebrations on 16 October you can get them by calling Paul Bunce on 01423 851150.
