Corporate Counsel and InsideCounsel are seeking nominations for candidates for its upcoming National Women in Law Awards, which honors general counsel, deputy general counsel, and law firm partners who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing the empowerment of women in corporate law. Honorees will be awarded at an awards dinner on Oct. 3 as part of our Women, Influence & Power in Law Conference that week.

These awards will recognize North American women general counsel and law firm leaders who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership and business acumen as they have guided their organizations through often treacherous roads to achieve success. These award honorees stand out because they are business strategists, complex problem-solvers, and of course, great lawyers. And as important (especially to them) is that they are great people-leaders—they care more about the success of the team than their individual success.
