The form should be completed and returned via email to helaw.uk@oup.com no later than Wednesday 13 December 2017.

Need a reason to nominate?
Subject-level TEF is on its way and, although we know you take teaching excellence seriously, soon you’ll have to prove it.

What better way of proving your commitment, and showcasing the talent in your school, than by having a member of teaching staff shortlisted for the only national award to recognize and reward excellent law teaching?

Putting together a good nomination

When pulling together a shortlist all the judges have to go on is the anonymised nomination form. So make this as strong as you possibly can. 

If you are a student nominator we encourage you to work with a teacher to make the entry as strong and relevant as possible.

• Do check the
eligibility guidelines before submitting your nomination.
• As noted on the form, each criterion should be addressed in 200 - 400 words to give the judges enough to go on.
• Provide evidence and examples where you can. You can include feedback from others in the form.
• After receiving your nomination we will contact both the nominee and their Head of Department for further information: it is therefore vital that you inform them of your nomination before it is submitted.

If you have any queries about your nomination, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us at helaw.uk@oup.com.
