We are pleased to announce that at Branch Personnel Day 2017, the Bristol & Bath Branch were awarded Branch of the Year!

Sarah Goodridge, Chair of the Branch, has commented 'The Bristol, Bath & Surrounds Branch are delighted to receive this award. Like all Branches, we work hard to support our members and raise the profile of CILEx. Branches are an excellent way to keep in touch with other legal professionals within your area and provide a good support network. All the work carried out by the Committees who run the Branches is voluntary, and this award is great recognition of all the hard work carried out by the Committee to keep the Branch running. I would encourage anyone who has not joined their Branch to do so and, even better, get involved with the Committee.'
