What are the benefits of being part of Leeds JLD?

It may have been a bit difficult over the past year, but lawyers in Leeds are (usually) out and about networking, training socialising and meeting clients – it’s something that comes with the job. Being so social can help lawyers from different specialisms and firms meet, share knowledge, and can also potentially bring in new business to a law firm.

By joining Leeds JLD, you can do just that!

JLD organises many social, training, educational and networking events for its members in the Leeds area. Over the past year these have ranged from virtual terrarium making, shuffleboard, BBQs, yoga and much more. These are all diverse ways to network, socialise and immerse yourself in the Leeds legal sphere.

Coming up this year, JLD will also restart its netball league, get involved in local races, organise dog walks and host its annual Christmas Ball on 29th October 2021. All of these events have exclusive discounts for members and some even come with some great freebies. In addition, if members have ideas about any other future events for the year, the Committee will try their very best to organise them too.

Alongside the events, perks of being a JLD member include:

  1. Expanding your network;

  2. Attending social gatherings;

  3. Speaking to recruiters;

  4. Understanding the potential jobs out there for you; and

  5. Having a bit of fun!
