Welcome to the Yorkshire Legal Awards

The Yorkshire Legal Awards took place on 7 October 2021 at New Dock Hall in Leeds

The Yorkshire Legal Awards brings together the region’s legal community to recognise and celebrate its many achievements. Congratulations to all of the 2021 winners.

Launched in 2000 to recognise the outstanding talent across our region, this is a key date on the calendar and offers professionals the chance to come together for a memorable evening of networking, socialising and celebrating. The award categories cover everyone from the biggest corporate firms to leading barristers, from senior partners to rising stars, and the event itself is a glittering black-tie affair, and always sells out—so early booking is recommended.

The awards are judged by a prestigious independent panel made up of experts from across the Yorkshire legal community. Representatives from the region’s leading societies, business groups and local public bodies lend their expertise and experience to assess hundreds of written and video entries, and decide who should be recognised as Yorkshire’s leading legal lights. The panel is reconstituted every year to ensure variety in views and backgrounds, and is bound by confidentiality and conflict of interest requirements to ensure its integrity and independence.
