Leaders in the Law and Up & Coming Lawyers
Next event: October 27, 2016
On October 27, 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.
In addition, this year we will be recognizing Up & Coming Lawyers. These are legal practitioners who are establishing a name for themselves, go above and beyond, and display the ambition, drive, determination and accomplishments that set them apart among their peers — in their first 10 years in practice.
The Leaders in the Law and Up & Coming Lawyers Class of 2016 will be announced soon.
The 2015 class of Leaders in the Law was recognized Oct. 29, 2015, with an awards ceremony and presentation at the Science Museum of Virginia.
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 Nov. 2 edition of the paper.
Richmond U.S. District Judge James R. Spencer was selected as “Leader of the Year” by his fellow members of the Class of 2015.
