The Lincolnshire CILEx Branch launch event was held at the beautiful Collection and Usher Gallery in Lincoln on 20 April.

As a branch, we aim to bring together all types of CILEx members from experienced fellows to students about to embark on their legal career. The Lincolnshire branch encourages members to share their knowledge, understanding and experience and to raise the profile of CILEx lawyers within the county. In order to do this, we have planned an exciting calendar of events over the next year which includes something for all, from CPD events and training sessions and to quiz nights and wine tasting.
