The Stevie is the world’s premier business award, recognising positive contributions made by organisations and working professionals around the world.
The 2016 IBA competition received more than 3,800 nominations across all categories, from organisations in more than 60 countries.
After two months of judging, Go To Court Lawyers won Gold in the Website & Apps (Legal) category, which is awarded for excellence in websites and blogs.
One judge praised Go To Court’s goal of connecting people with legal professionals based on proximity of location, saying it was a “very creative idea” which “makes life so much easier”.
The website’s content, functionality, ease of navigation and interactive features also received positive comments, leading to a high average score from the judges.
The judging committee was made up of CEOs and digital marketing specialists from companies in the UK, Canada, Turkey, Korea, and many other locations.
This is the second award for the Go To Court website in 2016, after being named Australian Legal Reference Website of the Year by Global Law Experts (GLE) earlier this year.
The Go To Court website is an accurate and freely-available reference tool for the general public and legal professionals, which breaks the law down into easy-to-understand language. It contains thousands of articles on key areas of law, across all Australian states and territories.
The website is regularly updated to cover new areas of law and keep up with legislative changes.
