NALP supports nomination of paralegal lawyer in Women in Law Awards 2020
The National Association of Licensed Paralegals (NALP) has announced that the annual Women in Law Awards 2020 will take place on 2 June at the Hilton London Bankside.
In 2020, the awards will aim to reshape the discussion around gender diversity within the legal industry “busting some of the norms and prejudices that continue to hold women back” in the legal profession.
The Women in Law Awards were launched by Incisive Media – and highlight the achievements of women and their excellence across all areas of the legal sector, as well as promoting forward-thinking initiatives to improve the sector's diversity.
“Despite the progress on tackling the gender pay gap and more employers offering flexible working hours, there is still a long way to go for inclusivity and gender equality in the legal profession,” said NALP in a statement.
The award categories range from ‘Woman of the Year’ to ‘Rising Star-Legal Services Innovator’ – and ‘Unsung Hero’, for which paralegal lawyer Caroline Spencer-Boulton has been nominated.
Holding an NALP Level 4 Diploma, Caroline runs her own Criminal Defence firm in Essex.
“Thanks to her determination and professional success, she has been raising the profile of the paralegal profession – NALP is very proud to support this nomination.”
The judging panel for the Women in Law Awards 2020 includes Kathleen Russ, Senior Partner at Travers Smith; Tuvia Borok, Executive Director and Senior Counsel, Legal department, Goldman Sachs; and Evelyn Styles, UK and Ireland General Counsel at Hays, among other leading figures.
Joanna Harris – Head of Responsible Business at Simmons & Simmons – will also be a judge at the event.
“I am honoured to be on the judging panel for the first Women in Law Awards… Showcasing the achievements of women across the industry is a great way of celebrating real talent – and, importantly, inspires others to make their mark, too.”
