LEGAL INNOVATOR AWARD
The Legal Innovator Award is intended to recognize people in the legal industry who have developed solutions to improve processes and enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the legal practice. Traditionally, lawyers and law firms have been resistant to change, so the profession has not seen as much innovation as it could. However, the legal marketplace is changing rapidly, so it is important that new innovations be recognized and shared with others in the community.
We’ve created the Legal Innovator Award to do just that—to foster innovation, originality, and to encourage meaningful, long-lasting change that will advance the legal profession unlike ever before.
If you know of a lawyer or law firm in Western Canada who has come up with an innovative approach to improve practice, we invite you to nominate them for the Legal Innovator Award. Simply email a short description of the nominee and the reasons why you believe they should be nominated. The final 3 nominees will be selected by a nomination committee.
NOTE: Submissions must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before March 30, 2018
On the day of the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to hear presentations by the final 3 nominees and vote on which one they believe should receive this outstanding achievement.
There are 3 criteria for nominations to be accepted.
- The nominee must be a lawyer or law firm based in Western-Canada.
- The innovation must be something that is currently in use (not something still in the idea or concept phase).
- The innovation must be something that other lawyers and law firms can adopt to improve their practice.
