Building on its commitment to supporting junior lawyers, BCL Legal last night sponsored and attended this year’s Birmingham Trainee Solicitors’ Society (BTSS) Christmas Social which took place at The Old Royal in the city centre.
The annual event brought together the cream of the region’s young legal community. Over 50 guests, who included newly and recently qualified solicitors, enjoyed festive mulled wine and mince pies.
The BTSS is an organisation made up of trainee solicitors, paralegals, newly qualified solicitors and post-graduate law students from across Birmingham and the West Midlands. Originally an off-shoot of the Birmingham Law Society, the BTSS has been operating for 173 years and remains as active as ever.
Each month it hosts a range of social, sporting, cultural and charitable events with the aim of bringing young lawyers together and raising their profile across the city and beyond. It is keen to also promote corporate social responsibility so that members make a positive and lasting impact in the local community.
James Brewster, business manager at BCL Legal, commented: “The BTSS provides a great opportunity for trainee solicitors and paralegals from across the West Midlands to meet and network together. We were delighted to sponsor the event, it was a real success and we are looking forward to building on our relationship with the organisation next year starting with our NQ Seminar in March.”
