Here at the NJLD we are very excited now summer is finally here! There will be more networking, educational and sporting activities for you to get involved with, including the most popular event of the year so far, The NJLD Summer Soiree!.

NJLD Rounders Tournament

We took advantage of the little sunshine available for the month and held our annual rounders tournament on 5 June. We had 5 teams of very high calibre take part in the competition and we enjoyed a BBQ and beer or two after.

Thank you to all the teams for taking part and to Molly Shipman for organising the event.

Congratulations to Ropewalk Chambers for the winning the tournament!

BCL Careers Talk 

BCL Legal Recruitment held their first ever careers event in Nottingham on the 27th June and we at NJLD were honoured to co-host the event as Alea Casino. The evening was aimed at providing trainees and newly qualified professionals with an idea of the current legal market and tips for interviews, applications and the recruitment processes as a whole.

We would like to thank the guest speakers, Manesh Lal (HR at Eversheds Sutherland), Daniel Jackson (Senior Associate within the FSDI team at Eversheds Sutherland) and Harry Taylor (Associate within the Employment team at Browne Jacobson) for taking time from their busy schedules to provide an invaluable insight into their respective firms and experiences.

Thank you to Luqmaan Ayaz and Emma Delli-Bovi from BCL Legal Recruitment for organising and co-ordinating the event.
