“mark of excellence”

The judging panel for this year’s Law Digest Africa Award has published the shortlist for the year’s awards.  Making the shortlist are candidates from Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya and Mozambique

The Law Digest Africa Awards is a brand new concept in recognising and honouring excellence in the African legal services market, by recognising the contributions of individual lawyers, law firms and in-house teams, large and small equally. The awards are based on the opinions of peers and the in-depth research that we conduct.

What distinguishes us from other awards is that we concentrate on growth, innovation, capacity building, community engagement and customer care.  The combination of the award criteria, particularly the significance we place on client feedback ensures that both large and small firms have equal opportunity to win our awards.

We are proud to say that our awards cannot be bought. No payments, subscription, contributions, is required or accepted.  We have gone to great lengths to ensure the integrity of our selection process and we have selected judges based on their proven integrity and independence.
