Junior Lawyers Division

The Junior Lawyers Division of the Cornwall Law Society represents trainee solicitors and junior qualified solicitors and CILEx members up to 5 years PQE

Who we are

Cornwall Junior Lawyer Division (JLD) represents the junior lawyers of Cornwall, up to 5 years PQE, and ensure the voice of Cornwall’s junior lawyers is heard at Cornwall Law Society committee meetings and also at national level.

It is a separate, and independent organisation, from Cornwall Law Society, although we work closely together and are highly supported by them. We are led by a committee of volunteers who are all themselves junior lawyers living and working in Cornwall.

The committee is now made up of:

Chair | Clare Hall | CVC Solicitors

Vice Chair | Yasin Ahmed | Coodes Solicitors

Treasurer | Charles Oliver | Stephens Scown

University Representative | Lexi Williams | Stephens Scown

National Representative | Ema Vaitkute | Stephens Scown

Social Secretary | Megan Eton | Stephens Scown

What do we offer?

We offer a range of social activities and training events to our members such as burger nights, quiz nights, wellbeing events, CV advice, and talks from judges.

Becoming a member of Cornwall JLD also entitles you to become a member of Cornwall Law Society.
