Event description

Description

The Secret Barrister's 'Stories of the Law & How It's Broken' topped the bestseller lists for much of the summer and brought home to many the devastating impact of the cuts to Legal Aid on our criminal justice system. It's also sparked criminal law as a topic of interest to those in practice and those just starting their studies. Young Legal Aid Lawyers South West invite you to hear from a range of criminal law specialists. The speakers will include:

• Lesley Ness, Crown Prosecution Service
• Victoria Hancock-Pritchard, Elite Solicitors
• Joshua Purser, Cornwall Street Barristers
• Mehrannisa Sadiq, Avon & Somerset Police

We will provide opportunity for informal networking and refreshments during the evening. The event is free to attend but you will need to register for a ticket via EventBrite.

What is YLAL?

Young Legal Aid Lawyers (YLAL) is a national campaigning organisation which works to support those who practice in areas of law that have traditionally been publicly funded. For example, criminal law, family law, housing, immigration, among others.

YLAL members include students, paralegals, trainee solicitors, pupil barristers and qualified junior lawyers based throughout England and Wales. We believe that the provision of good quality publicly funded legal help is essential to protecting the interests of the vulnerable in society and upholding the rule of law.

What is YLAL South West?

YLAL South West is a regional subgroup of YLAL and organises events and networking opportunities for its members. We are largely based in Bristol and hold three events a year in the city, normally in February, July and October. We invite practitioners to speak about their work and projects they are involved with, with the aim of raising awareness about particular topical issues and sparking interest in different areas of law.

Please like our Facebook page or email us to be added to our mailing list to receive updates on future events.

We look forward to seeing you there!
