It’s that time of year again when The Ministry of Justice opens it’s 2019/20 round of Queen’s Counsel Honoris Causa (honorary silk) awards by inviting nominations.
Honorary QC is an opportunity to award individuals who have demonstrated particular skill and expertise in the conduct of advocacy, made a major contribution to the law of England and Wales outside practice in the courts, has extensive legal experience and has made a significant contribution beyond what would normally be expected, amongst other things.
All practitioners and members of the public are free to make nominations (including self-nominations if they qualify) direct to the Ministry of Justice.
Nomination forms must be completed and returned to the MOJ by 12pm on Tuesday 13 August 2019.
