A massive congratulations to Fiona Bawdon (above right), Chris Minnoch (above left), Matthew Howgate and everyone in the wonderful Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards team for delivering yet another spectacular LALY awards night.
Working as a legal aid lawyer can sometimes be extremely challenging, but the LALYs always give Legal Aid lawyers a joyous and celebratory reminder about why we do this work and why it matters.
I am so proud to be a Friend of LALY this year, as I have been over many years.
Congratulations again to all the fantastic winners and finalists!!!
