The shortlist of the journalists in the running for this year’s Bar Council Legal Reporting Awards has been published today.

The competition was open to print/online and broadcast journalists in recognition of the media's role in promoting a greater understanding of the law to the public. The winning entries in each category will be awarded £1,000 in prize money.

The standard of entries was exceptionally high this year. For the first time, the Bar Council has chosen to shortlist entries to highlight some of the best legal journalism from 2020.

The winners will be announced later this month.
