Welcome to my latest bulletin as Chair of the NJLD for 2020. I hope you are all keeping well as the country slowly makes its way out of lockdown.

Behind the scenes, our Committee remain busy planning future events and activities for junior lawyers across the region, particularly as pubs and other venues are open from 4 July, however we are continuing to follow the Government’s guidelines closely.

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! Hopefully events in person will restart as soon as possible.
