The London Regional Group has over 1000 members. We cover a wide geographical area, bounded by the M25. Our Members come from diverse practising backgrounds, a strength that is reflected in the membership of our Committee and in the seminars we organise.
Our committee and structure
Our committee meets once a month. All of us volunteer our time in addition to running busy practices. We come from firms large and small and, have a breadth of experience in privately and publicly funded work, financial and children cases.
Many of us sit on a number of other committees, including: the National Committee; the Family Justice Council; the Regional Liaison Committee; the Skills Committee; the ADR Committee; the Media Committee, and Court Users’ Groups.
We exist primarily to organise educational and social events for our members. On the educational side, we organise around 8 seminars per year on a range of topical subjects covering black letter law and skills training. Socially, we have a popular drinks party every year, usually during the summer, as well as organising other periodical events such as quiz nights.
Within London, a further group, Young Resolution (or ‘YRes’) has been formed as a sub-committee of the main group. YRes’s focus is on addressing the particular training needs of non-partners, and on hosting regular social events for their Membership. Find out more about London YRes.
