Birmingham Law Society has announced that journalist and newsreader Huw Edwards will be hosting its flagship annual awards event later this year.

Huw Edwards anchors Britain’s most popular TV news bulletin, the BBC Ten O’Clock News, and has led the broadcast commentary for some of the world’s most prestigious events including the spectacular opening ceremony at the London Olympics in 2012.

Birmingham Law Society is proud to announce Huw as the host of the 2019 Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards, scheduled for the evening of Thursday 14th March 2019 at the International Convention Centre in Birmingham.

Now in its 18th year, The Birmingham Law Society Legal Awards event has become a permanent fixture in both the legal and business calendars, attracting a capacity crowd year-on-year to celebrate the very best of the region’s legal talent.

Awards will be made to firms and individuals who have displayed exceptional performance over the last 12 months, including in the new category of Excellence in Client Service (for both business and private clients).

President of Birmingham Law Society, James Turner, says: “Huw Edwards represents many of the qualities that Birmingham Law Society values most: integrity, tenacity and professional excellence. His involvement in this year’s Legal Awards reflects the reputation of Birmingham and the wider Midlands region as an increasingly key feature of the national legal landscape.”

There are a limited number of corporate sponsorship opportunities available to businesses at the event – those interested should contact Birmingham Law Society directly.
