This October, Virginia Lawyers Weekly will honor its annual class of 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.
New for 2019, Virginia Lawyers Weekly will also honor in-house counsel who also embody the characteristics of a Leader in the Law. Nominations for both are now being accepted through August 16, 2019.
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.
