Women in Law Leadership Stronger Together Awards

Nominations
Nomination Process
Individual Nominations

Members of the legal profession are nominated by a single nominator and can nominate themselves. Individuals nominated must be members of the legal profession in a Canadian province or territory. 

All nominations received in one year and not selected for an award in that year will automatically be considered again in the following year, providing the nominee continues to meet eligibility criteria (unless the nominee does not wish to be considered again in the second year).

Each nominee must be a member in good standing of a Canadian Law Society, can be practicing or non-practicing; working in private practice, in-house, government, education, or in the not-for-profit sector; and can be of any year of call.

All nomination packages received should include:
  • A statement from the nominator detailing why the candidate is worthy of the award. 
  • A curriculum vitae of the nominee outlining the nominee’s background, career, and any activities that qualify her (them) or a Stronger Together Award (see Criteria below). 
  • Two letters of support for the nominee from someone other than the nominator (three letters of support for the candidate if she/they is self-nominating).
