NJLD News November 2020

Welcome to my latest bulletin as Chair of the NJLD for 2020. I hope you are all keeping well.

Behind the scenes, our Committee remain busy planning future events and activities for junior lawyers across the region, however we are continuing to follow the Governmental and individual firm guidelines closely so unfortunately, we are unlikely to meet again in person in 2020.  When the position with Covid-19 eventually improves, we will be able to hold events in person, however this appears a way off yet.

We do have a couple of digital events in the pipeline and information regarding this will be released in due course,  so keep an eye on your emails and social media!


We are always looking for new members to boost the NJLD throughout the region. Sign up now so that you don't miss out on everything the NJLD has to offer during 2020/21.

Due to Covid-19, we have not been able to hold most of our planned social activities and events this year.  As a result, we will be rolling the Nottinghamshire Junior Lawyers Division membership forward to 2021.  If you are already a member, then your membership will automatically continue in 2021, free of charge.

Should you be interested in joining the NJLD or have any questions in respect of membership, please do not hesitate to contact our membership secretary, Jessica Jesson, via JessicaJesson@eversheds-sutherland.com.  Alternatively, please contact me on Andrew.Dennis@gateleylegal.com.

If your firm, chamber or company has placement students, Paralegals, Pupil Barristers, Trainees or newly qualified Solicitors / recently called Barristers (up to 5 years PQE/BPTC) then consider the benefits that the NJLD's educational, professional, social and sporting networks can offer them.  For further information please see the NJLD Webpage https://www.nottslawsoc.org/about-njld

Should you have any questions in relation to this bulletin, please do not hesitate to contact me via Andrew.dennis@gateleylegal.com.

All the best and stay safe on the corona-coaster,

Andrew Dennis
