Yes, this is the bit where I shamelessly beg for your vote.
I’m delighted (and very surprised!) to have been shortlisted for the 2015 Family Law Awards in the following category:
“Family Law Chartered Legal Executive or Paralegal of the Year”.
The winner of this award is being decided by an online public vote, and you can cast your vote here – http://www.familylawawards.com/ext/vote.asp
Here is the boring stuff about me:
Ruth Langford is a qualified Paralegal specialising in family law in both England/Wales and Scotland, with a particular interest in the law as it applies to children. She is co-author of The Family Law A to Z, a reference book for litigants and students.
Ruth is the Wikivorce Community Manager which involves looking after all the members, heading up a team of volunteers and writing content for the site, and is also one of a small team of advisors who provide advice and support to members of the public who call the Wikivorce helpline. Wikivorce is a well-respected volunteer run social enterprise with a mission is to help people who are going through a breakup. Each year the enterprise provides free advice and support to over 50,000 people – which means they help people in 1 out of every 3 divorces in the UK. Wikivorce is the largest online divorce support community in the world with over 126,000 registered members.
So, if you have ever enjoyed reading my blog, gained any information (either useful or useless) from my blog/book/articles on Wikivorce and elsewhere; used Wikivorce either for advice, support or information or simply are looking for someone to vote for in this category, then please consider voting for li’l ole me.
I’ll put the vote thing here, in case you just skipped to the bottom to see if I was offering any cash incentives.
