Nominations now open for prestigious Netlaw Media awards
Netlaw Media, the organiser of Europe’s largest legal IT event, is to host the inaugural British Legal Technology Awards. The awards ceremony will take place at the prestigious Plaisterers’ Hall in London on 15th November 2017. The event is expected to bring together 300 dignitaries, nominees and guests in a celebration of exceptional achievement within the UK and European legal IT and cyber security sectors.
Law firms, barristers’ chambers and in-house legal teams based anywhere in the EU can nominate themselves for up to four award categories: technology leader of the year, technology team of the year, technology venture of the year and IT security leader of the year. Separately, legal IT, vendors and consultants can nominate themselves in up to six categories: innovation in legal services, new IT product of the year, IT security provider of the year, IT integration project of the year, and supplier of the year for both large and SME legal enterprises. Full details about each award category, together with details of how to enter, can be found at the British Legal IT Awards website.
Nominations for the British Legal Technology Awards are open now and close on 11th September 2017. Finalists will be announced at Netlaw Media’s amalgamated London Law Expo and European Legal Security Forum, which will take place at the Old Billingsgate in London on 10th October 2017.
All awards will be evaluated by an independent panel of experts, chaired by Jacqueline de Rojas, President, techUK. The judging panel will also bestow a lifetime achievement award on an individual the panel concludes has been instrumental in driving the evolution and successful impact of technology within the legal services sector over the course of a long career.
Explaining the rationale for the British Legal Technology Awards, Netlaw Media UK and EMEA Managing Director Frances Armstrong says: “For the past three years, our company’s British Legal Technology Forum has showcased cutting edge legal technology, and enabled industry leaders to share their experiences of delivering successful legal technology innovation. It therefore seemed fitting that Netlaw Media should host an award ceremony that recognises excellence in legal technology, which encompasses both legal practices and solutions providers.”
Armstrong continues: “We’re especially delighted to have bought together a judging panel who, between them, have more than 150 years’ experience in the legal technology market, both as suppliers and consumers. Nominees can therefore assume that their awards submission will be subject to vigorous – but fair – scrutiny, and that the winners’ success will be richly deserved.”
