Young Lawyers Group – Calendar of Events


Wine, wine and vin…yes that’s Danish for wine!


In association with Santillo Consulting the Warwickshire Law Society Young Lawyers’ Group held their first ever Speed Networking event on 18th February at the Star & Garter in Leamington Spa. With Claudia from Santillo Consulting taking the helm by organising over 20 enthusiastic young lawyers in to their seats. The attendees had 2 minutes each to meet, greet and get to know their opposite number before the bell rang indicating the time to move seats to the next match. The evening was a fun and informal opportunity to network with other business contacts over a glass of wine.


February also saw the Young Lawyers joining the Birmingham Trainee Solicitors’ Society on a trip to Copenhagen. Sarabjit Nijjar, Fee Earner at Keoghs and National Junior Lawyers Division representative for Warwickshire was joined by colleague Rehana Ali, also a Fee Earner at Keoghs on the journey. The two young lawyers met with the BTSS before boarding the plane from Birmingham airport on 25th February, landing in Copenhagen a few hours later. Once unpacked the young lawyers visited all the tourist spots (and a few bars too!) whilst getting to know the trainee solicitors from Birmingham. After joining the BTSS on a number of events Sarabjit said  “the abroad trips are a fantastic opportunity to network  whilst absorbing a new culture and enjoying a few drinks!” The travelers arrived safely home on 28th February with a postcard and a few stories of the goings on at Wragges!


Keeping with the wine theme, March will see the young lawyers hosting a free wine tasting event sponsored by Sacco Mann and Wesleyan for Lawyers. The evening will be held at Merchants Wine Bar in Warwick, the Young Lawyers would love everyone to join in so pop in after work for a free glass or two, and some nibbles for the designated drivers! Please invite your colleagues.
