Nottingham Legal Walk
On Thursday, 16 May 2019 the Branch participated in the Nottingham Legal Walk. The weather was glorious, and we all enjoyed a complementary drink afterwards. Best of all, we managed to raise £200 and counting!
Facilitated Discussions with: Dr Liz Curran, Australian National University, School of Legal Practice
On 20, 25 and 27 June the Nottinghamshire Branch collaborated with Nottingham Trent University to invite CILEx members to attend three informal discussion groups with Dr Curran looking at health justice, conflict resolution and student learning: Building Collaborations Locally - Applying a Health Justice Partnership Model to Law Clinics, Alternative Ways to Approach Legal Problem Solving and Disputes to the Adversarial Process to Seek Justice and New Approaches to Lawyering and the Implications for Legal Education: Equipping Our Students to Meet the Changing World.
Neurolaw Workshop with Nottingham Trent University
On 6 June, 2018, the Nottinghamshire Branch collaborated with Nottingham Trent University to invite CILEx members to attend a free Neurolaw Workshop. The event was hosted by Nottingham Trent University and was focused on issues relating to neuroscientific evidence and law. It was designed to raise awareness of the issues surrounding neuroscientific evidence in the British courts. The focus of this event was on the assessment of criminal responsibility and it was part of the University's research strategy following the Health and Well-being theme.
The Nottinghamshire Branch held a meet and greet for members at Pitcher and Piano in Nottingham on 16 March. It was attended by a large number of new members as well as a clerk from a local barristers' chamber and a hostess from a local hotel who helped with hospitality. A welcome drink and nibbles were provided and Harpreet Kaur and Gail Cook were there to discuss Branch matters and future legal and social events. The event was a great success with everyone mingling, getting to know each other and offering suggestions for future events with much enthusiasm.
