Marilyn Stowe said that she was thrilled to be a part of the judging process and that her and her fellow judges were impressed by the level of nominations that they had assessed. Stowe was joined by an eminent panel of judges including Alistair MacDonald QC - New Park Court Chambers; Rachel Baldwin – President of the Sheffield Law Society; Jill Dickinson – Sheffield Hallam University; Peter Wright – DigitalLawUK; David Wright – MKB Solicitors; Colin Gilbert – President of the Leeds Law Society; Judge Geoffrey Kamil; and Jasmine Cawkwell – Chair of the Leeds Junior Lawyer Division.
