Branch Services

As a branch we propose to provide social and professional support to all members working with the Bristol Bath & Surrounding areas and raise the profile of CILEx generally.

We aim to provide the services detailed below.  However, we do rely on input from our members as to what events may help you and we always welcome feedback.


We organise a variety of events during the year which both members and guests are invited to attend.  An events list is regularly emailed to branch members and also details will appear in the Journal.


As a branch we aim to offer CPD approved seminars on a range of topics during the year.  Details of training events are regularly emailed to members and will also be included in the Journal.  Colleagues of branch members are also welcome to attend any training events subject to a nominal fee which may vary depending on the course.  


All of the committee are here to assist our members and raise the profile of both the branch and CILEx.  If you wish to contact any of the committee members please email the branch email address which is  The committee members are:-

Sponsorship Opportunities

Although the branch receives a small annual grant from CILEx, we do rely on the nominal annual subscriptions and on each event being self funded.  We do however, for particular events obtain sponsorship from outside sources and appreciate the support as some of the events would not be possible without the sponsorship.

During 2013, we received sponsorship from Albion Chambers, Paragon Costs Solutions, 3Paper Buildings Chambers, St John’s Chambers, Queen Square Chambers, Guildhall Chambers and Temple Legal Protection Limited. In addition Wessex Water sponsored the student award at the Summer Ball. We would like to take the opportunity of thanking all our sponsors for their continued support.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of sponsorship please contact Sarah Goodridge.
