Cardiff and South East Wales Junior Lawyers Division (JLD) organised an evening where 150 lawyers and law-related professionals took part in the Great Legal Quiz.
Congratulations and huge thanks to Clare Good and her fellow JLD colleagues for their efforts, which ensured the evening went smoothly, in a packed and noisy Steinbeck and Shaw (not a law firm!) in the centre of Cardiff. An impressive array of raffle prizes was donated. The atmosphere was excellent, despite some very tough quiz questions. Some of us haven’t yet recovered from not knowing the 12th word of the lyrics to Wuthering Heights. And don’t get us started on the lyrics of Abba’s Knowing Me, Knowing you – it’s not too late to lodge an appeal!
Reaching Justice Wales (RJW), the Welsh legal support foundation of the Access to Justice Foundation, was proud to finish as the winning team, following a tie-break that hinged on Tom Danter of Dolmans knowing when BBC2 first went on air. The RJW team was led by His Honour Judge Robert Harrison, Designated Civil Judge for Wales and Chair of RJW, who gave the pre-quiz welcome. The team was significantly helped towards victory by Eleanor Barrow of LawWorks, and Personal Support Unit volunteers, law students Eleanor and Cameron.
£950 was raised from the evening, to be divided between Reaching Justice Wales and LawWorks.
Thanks to all!
The Reaching Justice Wales Committee
