The 2019 Lexpert Zenith Awards: Celebrating Change Agents in Law recognize change leaders who are focused on client relationships, diversity and inclusion, technology, accessibility to legal services, or redefining what it means to practise law. Winners were selected from law firms, corporate legal and government departments, academia and those with alternative legal careers.
