We are delighted to announce that Jo Delahunty QC has been shortlisted for Legal Personality of the Year at the LexisNexis Legal Awards 2020. The Legal Personality of the Year award honours an individual (not necessarily with a background or qualification in the law) who has made an outstanding contribution in the legal sphere in the past year. This award is a community award, voted for by the entire legal community. People have until 17:00 on Wednesday 12th February to cast their votes here.
The LexisNexis Legal Awards (formerly known as the Halsbury Legal Awards) were launched in 2013 to recognise and celebrate excellence and innovation across the legal sector and they have attracted an increasing number of high calibre entrants each year.
The 18 award categories celebrate the best of the best across the whole legal spectrum and are judged by a panel of leading figures in the legal world including the Law Society President, Simon David, Chair of the Bar, Richard Atkins QC and Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, the Director of the International Bar Association's Human Rights Institute.
The 2020 winners will be announced at the awards night on the 11th March 2020 at the Sheraton Grand, Park Lane.
