The Junior Lawyers Division Cardiff and South East Wales are a group of junior lawyers including students, paralegals, trainee solicitors, CILEx lawyers, solicitors and barristers of up to five years qualification in Cardiff and South East Wales.
The Committee is made up of 10 enthusiastic volunteers who are dedicated to the success of the Cardiff JLD. We meet regularly to organise networking and professional events including training and careers talks and workshops to assist junior lawyers in their careers, including help with securing a training contract or newly qualified position. We give young lawyers a voice by addressing issues which affect them, such as contributing to the SRA’s consultation “Training for Tomorrow” regarding introducing the common professional assessment – the Solicitors Qualifying Examination.
We understand that the early stages of a career in law can be particularly demanding so the support network of your local JLD can be both comforting and helpful. Membership is free and you will receive invaluable networking and training opportunities. So if you are a university law student, paralegal, trainee solicitor, legal executive, solicitor or barrister with up to five years qualification then please sign up to receive details of our upcoming events.
