Women in Law Awards COVID-19 Statement

Despite our best efforts to deliver the Women in Law Awards we have taken the decision to postpone this event and plan for a safe and successful event on 16 July 2020.

The current global situation unfolding around COVID-19 presents too much risk and our first priority is to protect the health and well-being of our guests, sponsors and staff along with the quality of the event and we hope that you will support us in this decision and continue to join us on the new date.

If you have already booked a table, we will automatically transfer your booking to 16 July and we will communicate further updates in due course. If you would like to join us on the 16 July 2020, please contact Orhan Toprakci  via Orhan.Toprakci@incisivemedia.com or on  020 7484 9973 .

Women in Law Awards 2020


Incisive Media is delighted to launch the Women in Law Awards 2020, an exciting new opportunity to showcase the achievements and innovations of women across all areas of legal practice.

The legal profession has made significant strides down the road to creating a genuinely diverse, equal opportunities landscape. Law firms and organisations have become increasingly transparent about their gender pay gap and flexible working conditions are commonplace. But there is still a long way to go to break the glass ceiling that impacts the career prospects of women in legal practice and at board level. The Awards are also here to recognise non-practising roles in law firms, in-house teams and across the industry as a whole.

About the Awards

The Women in Law Awards will honour the inspiring achievements of women across all segments of the industry and will also help shape the discussion around how diversity can be improved by highlighting some of the most forward-thinking initiatives. Showcasing excellence and achievement is a vital tool in the continuing battle to establish equality across all parts of the profession and in all roles.

We hope you will take this opportunity to either nominate yourself or a valued colleague and we look forward to revealing the finalists and winners on 16 July 2020 at The Hilton Bankside.

Please note a person can only be nominated in a maximum of three categories. Women currently on a career break can also be nominated. Some categories are also open to men. Please refer to the category eligibility criteria for more details.


Nominations closed at 5pm on Friday 17 January 2020

This event is working towards the International Standard ISO 20121 and follows guidance set out by the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA)
