  • Sarabjit Nijjar of Keoghs LLP is stepping to become Vice Chair of the Group

The Committee is always expanding, and Junior Lawyers from all Firms within the area are welcome to join the Committee.

 

If there is anybody who would be interested in joining the Committee, please email Laura at laurastuart@brethertons.co.uk or contact the Committee via their Social Media, details of which can be found below.

 

If joining the Committee isn’t your cup of tea, then please make sure you are supporting the Group and Junior Lawyers in the region by attending their events.

 

The Group’s Bowling event in October is a sell-out, but keep your eyes peeled for the Groups Linked In Seminar in November and the Christmas do in December!

3)      September 08 2016, saw the Warwickshire JLD welcome a new intake of Trainees from the area and host their Annual Charity Event!

 

The Charity Quiz Night was organised by Sarabjit Nijjar, of Keoghs LLP who is the JLD Representative for Coventry and Warwickshire and Hannah Bates, of Shakespeare Martineau, the Group’s Immediate Past Chair. The event was held at the Hilton Hotel, Warwick and was kindly sponsored by Santillo Consulting. The Quiz Master was the President of the Warwickshire Law Society, our very own David Murray!

 

The Event was to support the Warwickshire JLD’s chosen Charity, Suited for Success; a Charity who aim to help unemployed people back into work through the collection and distribution of good quality ‘gently worn’ workwear.

 

Before the competition began, the Warwickshire JLD and Patricia from Suited for Success in Birmingham were thrilled by the kind generosity of our attendees who donated their gently worn professional clothing and accessories. Suited for Success also received a selfless donation from St Philips Chambers in Birmingham, including 30 ties and 3 suits, which will make a huge difference to those who are currently seeking to get back into employment.

 

Following 7 rounds of tough quiz questions and friendly competition, Wright Hassall reigned supreme and were crowned the winners, and they were closely followed by their colleagues, with another Wright Hassall team finishing in second place. The runners up were team Keoghs LLP who after securing first place during the first half of the quiz were pipped to the post!

 

The Charity Quiz Night was a great success and the Warwickshire JLD are looking forward to another night of good food and friendly competition, on Tuesday 18th October 2016 at the free Bowling event, kindly sponsored by Robert Walters.

 

Keep your eyes on the Warwickshire JLD’s social media for further details and to register your attendance for the Event!
