News from the Devon & Somerset Junior Lawyers' Division new Committee

As 2019 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 10 representatives from 8 different law firms based across Devon & Somerset. 

 

The elections were held during the JLD AGM, hosted by Oddfellows in Exeter. It was a well-attended and enjoyable evening.  Whilst a small number of committee members return from last year's committee, it is great to welcome 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 and following a lengthy discussion the JLD’s charity of the year was unanimously decided. The JLD are very proud to announce that over the course of the year we will be supporting the Devon Freewheelers; a South-West charity that provides a free out of hours service to the NHS. The charity is a blood bike charity which couriers blood, and blood samples amongst other items. You can find out more about The Devon Freewheelers at their website.

 

The new JLD committee held their first event in December; a Christmas social event held at the Oddfellows Mulled Wine Tent at Exeter Christmas Market. The JLD’s charity of the year for 2019-2020 was announced.

 

The event was a huge success with an excellent turn-out; over twenty junior lawyers attended the event to socialise in the festive spirit. A collection of mulled beverages, nachos, pizzas and churros were devoured, whilst attendees gathered around the fire pit.

The committee look forward to meeting again in January to share ideas on how to further develop the committee and begin preparations for a series of social, sporting, educational and charitable events.

 

Details of the upcoming events will be circulated to JLD members in the New Year, so keep an eye out!
