The London Young Lawyers Group organises monthly events in London, ranging from CPD seminars and careers evenings to social events such as our annual ball, summer drinks and Christmas party. These events allow members to meet other people at the same stage in their careers, and get to know them in an informal environment – usually over complimentary drinks! Secondly, the LYLG provides a vital support network for lawyers during the early stages of their career. Law students, trainee solicitors and qualified solicitors up to 7 years PQE are eligible to join for a modest annual fee.
Our members include junior lawyers working in the Magic Circle, US firms, regional firms, legal aid practices and in-house legal departments. The diversity of members shows what a valuable resource the LYLG has become.
We hope that being a member of the LYLG makes the experience of embarking on a legal career in London less daunting. We can also provide ad hoc support and assistance in a variety of ways, which can be particularly useful to junior lawyers at smaller firms, whose support network is otherwise limited.
We are here to provide a service to LYLG members so if you have any questions, ideas or suggestions, please get in touch and we will do our best to help
