Update from Southern Young Lawyers Committee

The SYLC have had a great start to the year and are looking forward to more wholesome good times on the horizon for all lawyers – whether you’re young, older or young at heart.

The first two instalments of our new monthly social drinks have been very well attended and its been fantastic to see many fresh faces mix with some more experienced members of the profession. Thank you to Ginners Dive Bar for hosting us.

Our first CPD event for the year on Subdivisions hosted by Hannah Bellamy and Mick Young from the LTO last week was exceptionally well attended both in person and via Zoom. Thanks Hannah and Mick for your contributions – they are much appreciated. Our next CPD event is on Thursday 8 April on the topic of Terminating Retainers, presented by Daniel Zeeman and Alan Hensley.

Our next event is on Thursday 1 April 2021 – Easter Long Lunch at Bar Wa from 2:00 p.m. for a 2:30 p.m. start. If you can take the afternoon for an early minute we encourage your attendance at this wonderful venue for what will surely be the best way to bring in the long weekend. A ticket link will be available in the coming days. We’re also looking forward to the return of Quiz Night and the Golden Gavel over the winter months.
