2021 shortlist

Congratulations to all the finalists

Yorkshire is home to a premier legal profession and is considered to be the UK’s biggest legal centre outside of London. These awards were developed to celebrate this incredible community, and the achievements and successes of the region’s best and brightest.

We had a fantastic response and dozens of entries for our independent judging panel to review. The debates were fierce and the results close, but these entries shone through and we’re pleased to be able to recognise them as 2021 finalists.
