Nominations sought for ALC's 'Outstanding Newcomer in Children Law' Award 2010

Nominations close 18th June 2010

Now in its sixth year, the ALC's 'Outstanding Newcomer in the Field of Children Law Award' is looking for its 2010 winner. The award is in memory of David Hershman QC. Its aim is to recognise the contributions of newcomers to the field of children law and to encourage them to continue to play an active role in shaping the future.

Last year's nominations included university students, barristers and solicitors alike. If you know someone who you think is an exceptional newcomer to the field of children law the ALC would be delighted if you would nominate them.

The winner will be presented with the award at the Hershman/Levy Memorial Lecture on Thursday 1 July 2010 at St Philips Chambers, Birmingham. 

Nominees must be solicitors, barristers, trainees, pupils or students. They must have been working in the field of children law for 5 years or less. The proposer must feel that the nominee has made a contribution to good practice, facilitating children's voices or the development of the field of children law.

The nomination form can be found here by scrolling down to the second page. Nominations close on the 18th June 2010.
