MJC Law shortlisted for two Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year awards 2021

MJC Law has been shortlisted in the category ‘Legal Aid Firm/Not For Profit Agency’. This is extremely exciting news for MJC Law as there was a high calibre of entrants this year and the competition is fierce.  We as a firm are incredibly proud of our team who have worked hard during the pandemic to continue to provide a high quality service in helping some of the most vulnerable people in society and their families.  MJC Law prides itself on its determination to achieve results that will benefit our clients and it is fantastic to have achieved some recognition for the great work we do.

Our very own Kate Jackson, director at MJC Law has also been shortlisted in the category ‘Disability Rights’.  Kate specialises in Court of Protection personal welfare cases and representation of patients before the mental health tribunal.  Kate is dedicated to her work and takes a thorough and collaborative approach, putting the wishes and feelings of her clients at the forefront of every case.  Kate’s dedication is translated to the development of her colleagues and operates an open door policy in respect of the juniors at MJC Law.  This is a brilliant achievement to be shortlisted in this category and we have no doubt that Kate will go on to achieve more in the future.

Chris Minnoch, CEO of LAPG, which organises the LALY awards on a not-for-profit basis to celebrate the work of social justice lawyers, says:

‘This year’s finalists give an insight into the range, depth and breadth of the incredible life-changing work that social justice lawyers do – and the vital role they play in ensuring access to justice for individuals, families and communities. It is testimony to the importance of the LALY awards to the legal aid sector that we had a bumper crop of compelling and inspiring nominations this year – despite the extreme pressures we are all facing due to the pandemic.’

The winners will be announced at the LALY 21 ceremony to be broadcast live on 6 July 2021.

Good luck and well done MJC Law!
