Justitia Awards – Call for nominations
As part of the conference, the Justitia Awards will be held on the evening of 5th June 2020 recognising outstanding female laureats of the legal professions. The awards ceremony will take place at the Austrian Palais de Justice. Outstanding female candidates of the legal professions can be nominated for the following three categories:

  • International leaders / life time awards
    This category celebrates the most talented and outstanding women in the legal professions and recognizes their achievements and their contribution to society. The nominee is “the” outstanding woman of the year who demonstrates excellence as the most innovative and groundbreaking lifetime achiever.
  • Academia
    The nominee should have made a significant impact, delivered qualitatively and/or quantitatively measurable tangible results relative to the invested resources and influenced demonstrable changes in attitudes, beliefs, and practices towards gender equality.
  • Game changers / pioneers / young achievers
    The nominee is a game changer who has made an impact in the promotion of innovative approaches which have resulted in opportunities for women in law or a young legal professional, and who has shattered the glass ceiling in her field. This includes new ways of working where “business as usual” has failed and innovative “out-of-the-box” solutions have succeeded. She has demonstrated innovation in terms of the themes covered, the methodology employed, the channels used to create opportunities, and/or other aspects.
