JLD national committee meetings 2021
The Junior Lawyers Division (JLD) national committee meets three times a year. If you're a JLD member and want to get involved with the JLD or find out more about what the JLD does, you're welcome to attend a national committee meeting as an observer.
The JLD national committee comprises:
- the JLD executive committee
- JLD members of the Law Society Council
- representatives from the local JLD group network
- Legal Practice Course (LPC) and Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE) student representatives
- representatives of other Law Society divisions (such as the Lawyers with Disabilities Division)
The purpose of the national committee is to provide:
- a forum for issues affecting junior lawyers to be discussed
- a place for policy positions to be settled and actioned accordingly
- an opportunity for the JLD committee to hear feedback from the local JLD group network on issues affecting junior lawyers at a local level
Only JLD members can attend national committee meetings – even as observers.
If you're an LPC or SQE student, LPC graduate, solicitor apprentice, trainee, or solicitor up to five years qualified you're automatically eligible. Observer places are limited and need to be approved beforehand.
If you're interested in attending a JLD national committee meeting as an observer, email email@example.com to reserve your place.
