Chambers & Partners has announced a new awards initiative to recognize the achievements of the top female attorneys.
Named the “Women in Law Awards”, an event will be held in New York in January 2012.
Individual winners will be determined on the basis of the Chambers USA 2012 research.
In each category, an “Up and Coming Lawyer of the Year” will be recognized alongside more established names.
Although there is no formal submission process for the individual awards, firms are able to prepare a brief submission in two law firm award categories: “Most Innovative Gender Diversity Initiative” and “Best Mentoring Program”
