Newcastle and North East Junior Lawyers Division

Region: Tyne and Wear

We regularly organise social events, networking opportunities, recruitment talks, and provide support to our members. Events are often sponsored by local organisations and are therefore free to members.

Events are always relaxed, fun and well attended by a broad range of down-to-earth, like-minded people, at different stages in their careers.

We send out regular emails to our members to keep them informed about our events.
