Careers Visit at Blenheim School

On Friday, 14 June 2019, the Branch attended a Careers Day at Blenheim School in Epsom. This annual careers event includes many different exhibitors, including universities, colleges, recruitment organisations, the Armed Forces, Navy, RAF, NHS, as well as private firms and companies. The school looked after all the exhibitors very well, with refreshments throughout the day and a lovely lunch prepared by the school cooks. The event is well attended by students who are inquisitive and quite well informed about the legal profession, whether from watching legal drams such as 'Suits' and some having lawyers in their families.

It was a very productive day, with students eager to take literature about CILEx and hear more about the CILEx route.


The Guildford and District Branch held their Annual General Meeting at the Three Pigeons Pub in Guildford on 20 February. It was a great opportunity to catch up with existing members, meet new contacts and share ideas on how to best develop and promote the Branch.

The Guildford Legal Walk took place on 12 June. This is a 10km walk through the Surrey countryside, starting at the Guildford Combined Court and ending with a reception kindly laid on by Clyde & Co in their Guildford offices.

The Guildford Legal Walk raises funds primarily for Surrey Law Centre and over the past few years has literally kept the Centre alive. With only a small number of legal advice agencies in the County it is vital that we help keep its doors open in order for it to be able to continue to provide its valuable services to the community.

The walk was in aid of the Surrey Law Centre.  Martin Callan came along for the start which was very good of him.
