London – At the Law Society Excellence Awards 2019, held in London on 23 October, Paul Hastings LLP was presented with the inaugural award for 'Excellence in Access to Justice".
The award – “to recognise those who champion access to legal services for those who need it most” – was for Paul Hastings' partnership with multiple charities (particularly the Youth Justice Legal Centre and Just For Kids Law). The citation reads: “Our judges were impressed with their excellent work, and appreciated their effort working in partnership with others, setting an example to the profession and leading to beneficial consequences for children’s rights.”
President of the Law Society of England and Wales, Simon Davis, said: "In such uncertain times, we must never forget the immense contribution that solicitors make to society. Our work is indispensable to upholding the rule of law.
'At the Law Society Excellence Awards, we come together to celebrate outstanding success in the sector. There are more than 180,000 solicitors in England & Wales: to be shortlisted is to be recognised among the best. To win is a remarkable achievement."
