CJLD saw the arrival of a new committee in January, eager to take the reins and organise exciting events for our members.
So far this year, we have had our famous annual pub quiz; bowling; wine tasting at Cambridge Wine Merchants, where members tasted six of their best vintages and learnt how to pick the best; and drinks at the Grain and Hop store, followed by a challenging evening at an escape rooms. There are many other events currently being organised, including our annual Ball in conjunction with the Cambridge Young Professionals Group. Do follow us on social media, or visit our website, for further information!
We have also been working with Wesleyan, a financial advice provider in the Cambridgeshire area, to put on talks for our members that would be of help and interest to young professionals. In March we had a talk on Financial Planning for Junior Lawyers. Soon, we will be holding an event with Errington Legal, a legal recruitment agency in the area.Our charity of the year is Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre, and in April they held a quiz night at a local school. We look forward to being able to raise more money for them through the events we are holding.
CJLD events create opportunities to make friends and have fun by bringing together junior lawyers, young professionals, and students. If you are a Trainee, Legal Executive, Paralegal, NQ or Law student in Cambridgeshire we hope you will join us. If you would like to find out more about the CJLD or wish to become a member, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you at our events soon.
