About Us

A network of local junior lawyers


The Leeds JLD is an independent not-for-profit organisation with over 500 members. We organise social, training, educational and networking events for all junior lawyers in the Leeds area. We aim to promote the interests of our members and develop relationships across the legal community. The Leeds JLD Committee is run by an elected volunteer Committee, more details can be found on our Committee page.


We are an independent body governed by our constitution, which you can view here. However we do have a collaborative relationship with Leeds Law Society and the National JLD of the Law Society as well as contact with the Law Society of England and Wales.
