Junior Lawyers Division

JLD local groups

Local JLD groups exist all across England and Wales (although some are branded as trainee solicitor or young solicitors groups). They run events, ranging from lectures, monthly meetings to social events, and offer an opportunity to socialise with junior lawyers who work and live in the area.

They can often be a lifeline for trainees who may be alone in their firms, as well as giving junior lawyers the chance to connect and build their professional networks. Many groups are building contacts with other groups representing the junior profession in their area.

These groups also have the opportunity to connect and network with each other, to share experiences and feed into the national policy campaigns. They are also invited to nominate a representative to sit on the JLD national committee. The JLD has in the region of 60 local JLDs in its national committee network, which meets three to four times a year.

About the Junior Lawyers Division

Your Junior Lawyers Division is dedicated to meeting the needs of all LPC students, LPC graduates (including those working as paralegals), trainee solicitors, and solicitors with up to five years post qualification experience.
