Our aim is to offer our members a range of events that we hope will be of interest to junior members of the legal profession, whether you have only recently embarked on a path of legal study or are a solicitor with up to five years’ post-qualification experience. Membership is free and automatic for these junior members of the profession.
During the course of the year we will be holding a number of events designed to assist the professional development of our members in a sociable and enjoyable way. Our events will also provide the perfect platform for networking between young professionals. We also invite guest speakers to address members on matters of legal interest and importance.
The objectives of the JLD are to promote and facilitate the educational and professional development of its members, provide a forum for the exchange of ideas concerning the legal profession, and to represent the concerns and opinions of its members to the Law Society of England and Wales and to the local law societies in East Sussex and Kent. We welcome suggestions from members which serve to enhance and promote these objectives.
Details of forthcoming events will be announced through regular emails, and updates will be posted on the JLD website. Please email the president should you wish to be added to the Kent & East Sussex JLD mailing list.
