About the Awards
The first annual Amicus Champion of Justice awards were presented on 7th Nov. 2019 at Bush House in London. On this evening, Amicus recognised the exceptional contributions from one firm and from one individual to Amicus’ work during the year. Nominations were either self-nominations or nominations by a third party.
The 2019 nominated firms and individuals have made significant contributions to Amicus’ work this year, as have the many, many other firms and individuals who were not nominated but who have also worked ceaselessly during 2019 to help the fight for justice on death row.
Without you, our work would not be possible. Thank you.
