Honorees and guests gather at Leaders in the Law


Leaders in the Law

Next event: October 2015
In October, Virginia Lawyers Weekly will honor the lawyers who are setting the standard for other lawyers with the Leaders in the Law awards program. We recognize attorneys and professionals in law-related fields who have a significant accomplishment or achievement. These include outstanding contributions to the practice of law in Virginia, significant achievements through the practice of law, leadership in improving the justice system and important contributions to Virginia’s legal community and/or the community at large.

2015 Nominations »

The 2014 class of Leaders in the Law was recognized Oct. 23, 2014, with an awards ceremony and presentation at the Science Museum of Virginia. During the ceremony, Judge Robert E. Payne was named the “Leader of the Year” for 2014. See photos from the event.

Profiles of the honorees were published in Virginia Lawyers Weekly’s “Leaders in the Law” special section, which was distributed at the event and inserted into the Oct. 27 edition of the paper.

We are currently accepting nominations for the 2015 class of honorees. Honorees will be announced in late summer.
