We’ve released a statement setting out our contingency plans for LALY20 in the face of the current COVID-19 crisis.

We think the LALYs will be more important this year than ever before.  Legal aid firms and organisations are doing some incredible work under the most trying of circumstances and they deserve to be recognised and celebrated. We will do everything we can to ensure the LALYs happens this year – one way or another we will support the sector and show the world that legal aid lawyers are heroes.

In the short term we have extended the deadline for nominations to 17 April 2020 and are happy to accept shorter nominations given the other significant and pressing demands on those who would normally put nominations together and provide supporting statements.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the LALYs.
