Nominate for the ACT Law Awards

The ACT Law Society invites members to consider their peers, their firms, and themselves, for nomination to the ACT Law Awards.

The ACT Law Society administers five awards, recipients of which are announced at our Annual Dinner & Awards Night in late August each year. The awards are:

Each year, the Law Society commissions a local artist to create a new and unique set of awards. In 2022, we have commissioned students from the University of Canberra's Faculty of Arts and Design to produce the trophies.

The Awards process

Nominations for the President’s Medal must be put forward by a person other than the nominee. For all other awards, individuals (or firms, where relevant) may self-nominate, or be nominated by someone else (subject to the nominees’ consent). Each nomination must be accompanied by documentation which:

  • explicitly addresses the eligibility criteria
  • provides the names and contact details (and/or written references) of at least two referees who may be asked to attest to the achievements on which the nomination is based. 

At the discretion of the CEO, the ACT Law Society may choose to acknowledge all award nominees, a short list of finalists, or only the winner, having regard to the number of nominations in each category and any recommendations made by the judging panels.

Nominations for the 2022 ACT Law Awards close at 5pm on Monday 25 July.
