40 UNDER 40

Rising Star Awards 2018

27th July 2018, New Delhi, India


The 3rd Annual “40 Under 40 Rising Star Awards 2018” to be held on July 27, 2018 at The Taj Mahal Hotel, New Delhi, India, will once again identify and honor young, up-and-coming talent under the age of 40 years that exemplifies vision, leadership, innovation, and accomplishments in the legal fraternity.

It was few years back that Legal Era - Legal Media Group instituted the Award ceremony as a celebration of young achievers - both in-house lawyers and those working in private practice, lawyers and law firms - and their outstanding contribution to the field of law. We were overwhelmed by the sheer number of entries and award submissions received, so much so that zeroing in on 40 winners proved to be quite an uphill task for our distinguished jury. We are immensely proud of the fact that our organization is the first of its kind to have introduced such an Award ceremony in this industry.
