BCL Legal Goes Spanish at The Leeds Junior Lawyers Division’s Social
As part of its ongoing support of the region’s junior lawyers, BCL Legal last night sponsored and attended The Leeds Junior Lawyers Division’s March social event which took place at Azucar Bar in the city centre.
The event saw over 70 of the city’s best up and coming young legal talent enjoy an evening of tapas and cocktails. Each guest received a free cocktail on arrival, drinks vouchers and plenty of tapas! There was also a Twitter competition which saw guests taking photos and using the hashtag #BCLcocktails. The best judged photo was Georgina Parkin’s from Truth Legal who has won a £75 restaurant voucher.
