Leaders in the Law and Up & Coming Lawyers
This 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 plan to 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, Up & Coming Lawyers will also be recognized. 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.
Stay tuned for more updates about the 2017 event.
