NJLD News May 2020

Welcome to my latest bulletin as Chair of the NJLD for 2020. I hope you are all keeping well and looking after yourselves during these “unprecedented times”. Getting used to working from home every day has proved surprisingly challenging, however everyone is in the same boat and it has finally prompted me to change my spare bedroom into a makeshift office, so its not all bad.

Behind the scenes, our Committee remain busy planning future events and activities for junior lawyers across the region once we leave lockdown, however we are closely following the Government’s guidelines.

Further details will be released when it is safe for us to all meet again, so please keep an eye on your emails and social media! Believe me, we are as keen to get back to normal as you are and events will restart as soon as it is safe to do so! It has definitely been a coronacoaster!


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.

As ever, we would politely encourage local firms to contribute towards their staff members' costs, as the NJLD is an excellent networking opportunity and allows members to build relationships which we hope will thrive, both now and in the future.

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 myself 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

Coming Soon…

To quote Arnie, we’ll be back. Eventually.

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,

Andrew Dennis

Chair NJLD 2019-2020
