National Paralegal Awards 2020 Ceremony Goes Virtual
The Professional Paralegal Register (PPR) is counting down to the National Paralegal Awards taking place on Friday 18 September.
The PPR normally welcomes over 270 guests at a venue in central London in March for its annual ceremony but this year was forced to postpone it because of the coronavirus outbreak. A decision was taken by the team at PPR to run the event virtually to reveal the many talented winners across multiple categories.

This year’s headline sponsor is international genealogists and probate researchers, Fraser and Fraser, who were awarded ‘Paralegal Business of the Year 2019’.
Rita Leat, Managing Director of the PPR commented:
“While the ceremony will be different from usual, we are embracing the spirit of change and relishing the opportunity to shine a positive spotlight on the paralegal community at this difficult time. I very much hope people will enjoy tuning into the programme we have planned on the night”
The live event will take place from 7pm with the opportunity for finalists, sponsors, judges, and their guests to network via a chat facility from 6:30pm. We wish good luck to all the finalists that have made this year’s shortlist and look forward to welcoming you to a night of celebration”.
For the second year, the events charity partner will support Young Citizens, who work to help young people become active, engaged and motivated citizens, who are able to contribute positively to their communities.
