News from the Devon & Somerset Junior Lawyers' Division: December 2018 Update

 

As 2018 drew to a close, a new year for the Junior Lawyers' Division got off to a festive start following November's AGM and elections.

 

November saw the election of the new JLD committee; made up of 15 representatives from 7 different law firms based across Devon & Somerset.  The elections were held during the JLD AGM, hosted this year at The Monkey Suit in Exeter, which was a well-attended and enjoyable evening.  Whilst a small number of committee members return from last year's committee, it is promising to see a high number of new committee members.  You can find out more information on this year's committee on the DASLS website.

 

At the first meeting of the new JLD committee, the JLD's charity of the year for 2018-2019 was unanimously decided.  The JLD are very proud to announce that over the course of the next year we will be supporting The Wave Project; a UK-based charity which aims to help young people become more resilient and fulfil their potential through surf therapy and beach schools.  You can find out more about The Wave Project at their website.

The new JLD committee hosted their first event in mid-December; a Christmas social event held at  the Oddfellows Mulled Wine Tent at Exeter Christmas Market. 

 

There was an excellent turn-out to the event; over thirty junior lawyers came along to socialise and sample a variety of mulled wines and mince pies in a classically wintery atmosphere, complete with saxophonist and fire pit.

 

 

 

The committee meet again in January to begin preparations for a series of social, sporting, educational and charitable events; including the annual 'Approaching Qualification' seminar to be held in in March.  Details of upcoming events will be circulated to JLD members in the New Year.

 

Hannah Porter and Ben Butterworth (Co-Chairs)
