EHN members will be pleased to hear that Chris Skinner has been honoured by our local Law Society. There was a spontaneous standing ovation at the awards ceremony whilst Chris’ children went up on stage to receive the award on his behalf.
The press announcement is reproduced below:
Local government lawyer Chris Skinner has been posthumously awarded for his outstanding contribution to the legal profession in Norfolk by the Norwich and Norfolk Law Society.
Chris, who passed away suddenly in February 2017, lived and worked in Norfolk for most of his career.
His children, Tom and Jess, received the award on his behalf from the President of the Norfolk and Norwich Law Society, David Richards, at the Society’s Annual Dinner (September 21st).
Chris was nominated for the award by colleagues at nplaw, which he had helped to establish in 2010 and where he had become the Practice Director in December 2016.
