October 2015

Max Harris


Welcome to the latest update from the Junior Lawyers Division, and a particular welcome to all those who have just started the LPC!

LPC students
If you are a new LPC student and you are wondering what the Junior Lawyers Division is, please see this welcome message which will give you a brief background. LPC students may also want to take a look at the 2015 client interviewing competition, which is now open for entry.

Pro bono
Nominations for the LawWorks JLD pro bono award are now open, and close this Friday, 16 October. We encourage our members to consider submitting an entry, to showcase the fantastic work of junior lawyers to the profession.
Further details on the award and how to nominate yourself

Please also remember that National Pro Bono Week is taking place on the week commencing 2 November. The aim of the week is to celebrate the breadth and impact of pro bono work undertaken by the legal profession across the year. We encourage our members to get involved by running their own events, or attending events in their local area (see more details in the Events section below).
More information about the week

JLD essay competition
I am excited to announce the results of the 2015 JLD essay competition. By way of reminder, the subject this year was: 'Should there ever be a case for absolute anonymity in legal proceedings, and if so, why and for whom?' Congratulations to Anna Dannreuther, a trainee solicitor in London, for winning this year's competition. You can read Anna's essay, as well as the highly commended entries from Jessica Ditchfield, Paul Hogarth and Christopher Stanton.

JLD elections
The 2015-16 JLD Executive Committee nominations are now open! If you would like to represent junior lawyers from across England and Wales on a national and international platform, we encourage you to submit a nomination by 23:00 on Tuesday 20 October.
More details on what is involved

Charlotte Parkinson, the 2014-15 student representative on the JLD Executive Committee, has written a blog on her experiences in the past year.

If you would like to get involved at a local level, then please do check out our local groups, and, if you are an LPC student, consider applying to become an LPC ambassador.

As always, please feel free to get in touch with us at or one of our social media channels.

Chair, Junior Lawyers Division of the Law Society
