Canadian Law Awards 2023

The LexisNexis Canada Award for Canadian Law Department of the Year

Open to all Canada-based law departments.


Judged on the quantity, quality, importance and innovativeness of legal work performed during calendar year 2022.


Winners of the two sector-specific law department awards will automatically progress to become finalists for this category; thus only law departments that do not fall within those two sector-specific categories need to be nominated.
