LCN Awards 2017: law firm and training principal nominees announced

We are delighted to bring you details of the firms and individuals who are nominated for the 14th annual LawCareers.Net Training & Recruitment Awards. The awards will be presented at a glamorous event at Merchant Taylor’s Hall in London on 18 May.

Within the core awards for training and recruitment by firm (large and small, city and regional), we see nominations for many previous winners, including Bird & Bird, Burges Salmon, Farrer & Co, Kirkland & Ellis, Nabarro, Shoosmiths and Travers Smith. In the Best Training Principal categories we also see repeat nominations for, among others, Letitia Glaister of Tees Law and Giles Chesher of Squire Patton Boggs (UK) LLP.

Two other coveted awards, the Commendation for Diversity and Best Law Lecturer, will be announced on the night.
