Australasian Law Awards

Thursday, 17 June 2021

Nominate now


The Australasian Law Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of Australia and New Zealand’s leading legal professionals, firms and in-house teams for their contribution to the industry over the past year. They are also a way to recognise the big deals that have occupied the profession.

The awards define excellence in the legal profession, the awards night typically attracts over 650 guests. 

Unfortunately, due to recent developments in Australia, we won’t be able to run a face-to-face gala dinner in 2021. While we’re disappointed that we’re not going to be seeing you at our face-to-face event, we’ve come up with a unique format to recognise and celebrate excellence across the Australasian legal profession.

Due to the high calibre of nominations this year, we will be recognising several excellence awards in addition to the winners of each category.

Nominations for the 2021 Awards will open in mid-January 2021.
