Work in private practice? Take the RollOnFriday Best Law Firms to Work At 2023 survey

Once again it's time to review some crackers from RollOnFriday's Glamorous Solicitor archive and award one of them the prestigious title of "Glamorous Solicitor of the Year 2011".

This year will be a knockout contest. Like the X Factor, but with proper talent and no funny trouser positioning. This time next week the number contenders will be whittled down to six, and the week after it'll be three for a final shoot-out.

Readers can vote as many times as they want, and RollOnFriday independent adjudicators will definitely not be on the lookout for suspicious voting patterns. The winner gets the glory, and an original "Queen's Counsel" cartoon by Alex Steuart Williams.

Check out the gallery below and cast your vote.

Last year's winner Tom "smoother than a cashmere codpiece" Adair was so honoured to win that he claimed he had tripled his hourly rate: which just goes to show the astonishing value of the RoF Glam Sol crown.

And remember, if anyone's found a Glamorous Solicitor then send them in for 2012, when the hunt will start again.

Maybe I'm just a condescending chauvinist pig, but no way do the women - both of whom are pretty - deserve to be included in this gallery.
