It is with great excitement that LLG announces the opening of the LLG Awards 2017 for nominations.

This year's awards will be hosted in Birmingham at the Burlington Hotel on 24th November 2017 and will highlight the very best in local government legal departments across England and Wales. This year sees the return of the Business Manager/Business Team of the Year and given the dynamic and progressive work ongoing at present we expect lots of nominations in this category.

The launch brochure with sponsor's details can be found here with the nomination form here.

I know many of you are reluctant to highlight your talents but these awards are an excellent way to raise your profile and demonstrate not just your worth but your exceptional talent to the in-house and private sector legal world, councillors, and senior officers. A number of previous winners have gone on to be shortlisted in the MJ Awards, Law Society Awards and Solicitor Journal Awards. The closing date for first stage nominations is Monday 4th September so get this in your diary now.

On another note the programme for the Governance Conference is being finalised and is shaping up to be a fantastic event with an array of guest speakers. The theme around governance and leadership will see specific sessions on commercialism, elections, housing, adult social care and health integration, ethics, information governance, alternative delivery vehicles and much more. Keep an eye out for the full programme published soon.

Have a good weekend
