Northern Law Awards 2016
23rd June 2016, Crowne Plaza Newcastle
Following the success of the North East Accountancy Awards, Echo launched the Northern Law Awards in June 2015. This was an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of those who work in and around the legal sector in the North of England. Now in its second year, the challenge was to maintain the interest of the legal sector and continue to grow support for the event.
How did we deliver?
Nominations were launched in November 2015 and we had a fantastic response receiving around 90 entries. The categories covered a number of areas offering a range of opportunities from New Lawyer of the Year to Outstanding Achievement, each category was judged by an expert in that field at the judging day which took place in April.
Hosted by Alfie Joey from BBC Radio Newcastle, the awards were a sell out once again, attracting over 315 professionals from across the region.
Echo were delighted with the continued positive response from the the legal sector in the north and are looking forward to the 2017 Northern Law Awards, where yet again a larger venue will be needed.
It was a pleasure to be involved and a fantastic event to be associated with. The organisation was exceptional and thoroughly enjoyed the night.
Overall it was one of the best events I have attended in terms of professionalism and enjoyment.
Talent, passion & commitment to delivery of outstanding legal services. A fantastic event and the North of England should feel very proud.
