Australasian Law Awards

Thursday, 17 June 2021


The Australasian Law Awards proudly returns in 2021 to recognise the region’s leading law firms, in-house legal teams, individuals, deals and cases over the past year. It’s a true reflection of excellence in the legal profession.

Leading firms, in-house legal teams, and lawyers are encouraged to nominate across 30-plus categories and be recognised for their achievements and outstanding work. Submissions will be reviewed by an esteemed independent judging panel.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, 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. Excellence awardees will be announced in Australasian Lawyer and online channels on 20 May. Gold winners will be revealed at the highly anticipated virtual ceremony on Thursday 17 June 2021.

Nominations for the 2021 Awards are now closed. Excellence Awardees will be announced online on the 20th May, while Gold Winners will be announced at a live virtual event on the 17th June. More info to follow.
