JUDGING PROCESS

Judges

LexisNexis Middle East organises a panel of judges that will review award entries and determine the award winners as follows.

 

Judging Process

All entries must be received by the deadline to be eligible for judging( give the deadline and the application formalities)

The day following the entry deadline, each award category is allocated to a committee of three judges for determination of which entries in that category will make the shortlist for that category. The number of entries on a shortlist will depend on the number of entries in that category.

Once the shortlists are announced, judges are asked to vote on their first and second choice in each award category. There are 16 judges and each judge votes in 10 to 12 categories. An entry is given 2 points for each “1st choice” vote and 1 point for each “2nd choice” vote. The entry with the most points in a category is the winner.

In both the shortlist and the voting phase the judges will utilise their own experience and their understanding of how firms / companies and professionals have performed considering the state of the economy and legal sector.
