Battle of the Legal Profession Bands

About this Event

LEXFACTOR POSTPONED

In light of current circumstances and with regard to our duty of care to all of our guests and performers, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone tonight’s event until a later date - https://www.lawscot.org.uk/lexfactorpostponed/

While government advice on the spread of the Coronavirus continues to allow events of this nature to go ahead and the number of cases in Scotland remains low, we are aware of concerns people have about travelling and that some organisations are restricting attendance at large scale events.

It’s Very disappointing, but we fully intend to reschedule the event and will confirm this with you as soon as possible. I very much hope you will be able to take part at that point.

The new date has been provisionally secured for 14 May 2020 .

----------------------

The Law Society of Scotland in collaboration with our sponsors, Lockton Companies LLP and Titlesolv are delighted to announce the LexFactor Battle.

This is a battle of the legal profession bands to raise money for the LawScot Foundation. The Foundation is our social mobility charity, founded a few years ago to ensure that coming from a less advantageous economic background is not a barrier to talented young people joining the Scottish legal profession.

We have five amazing bands drawn from across the legal profession. The music they perform will be lively, well known, entertaining covers.

The order of the bands below may not reflect their performance slot.

  • The Argyll Cycle - Gilson Gray LLP, Ferguson & Co, HRC Recruitment and Scottish Ambulance Service
  • A Flock of Legals - Shepherd and Wedderburn LLP
  • The Submissions – Edinburgh Bar Association
  • The Paroling Stones - BTO Solicitors LLP, DWF and Faculty of Advocates
  • Bail'her' Swift – Marshall Wilson, The Law Society of Scotland and Public Defence Solicitors' Office (PDSO)

Once all the bands have performed, the judges will decide on a winning band. This band will receive the first ever ‘LexFactor Trophy’ and perform again with one track from their set list, and of course the prestige of winning the inaugural battle.

Please come along to Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange for a great night of entertainment, to support your colleagues and most importantly to raise some money for this terrific cause.

To keep up with news on bands, judges and sponsors keep an eye on the @LexFactorBattle twitter page.

Covid 19 advice

At the moment all our events are going ahead as planned, including our charity fundraising event the LexFactor Battle. We are continuing to monitor the coronavirus situation very closely and are following official guidance from the Scottish Government and NHS. One band has chosen not to perform and of course we understand and respect their decision.

What can you do to help?

Your support in following the additional hygiene and safety advice notices in place around the building and using the anti-microbial wipes, hand sanitizer and anti-bacteria wipe is appreciated.

Simple steps such as careful handwashing and sneezing into your elbow or a tissue rather than your hands can help reduce the risk of infection. People with respiratory issues should remain extra vigilant.

We have confirmed with Edinburgh Corn Exchange that they have sanitiser gel in all of the bathrooms in addition to soap and water and they have also upped their cleaning throughout events on their premises.

Please be aware that we are recommending to colleagues that they consider not shaking hands with visitors. If someone chooses not to shake hands, please understand that this is not intended to offend.

We would ask that you follow current NHS guidance, and if you have concerns about potential signs of coronavirus or have recently travelled to one of the affected countries we would ask that you do not attend meetings/events at the Law Society at this time. Please contact the host of your meeting as it may be that technology solutions can be used to allow participation in meetings.
