Events

The York JLD are committed to providing varied events for our members, often in association with our sponsors. We also have links to the Yorkshire Law Society and work together to organise joint York JLD and Yorkshire Law Society events. Previous events range from networking events and financial presentations to charity fundraising and social evenings. Please see below for news of our upcoming events and a selection of our past events.

If you are a member with an idea for a York JLD event, or if you are interested in sponsoring a York JLD event then we would love to hear from you – please contact any committee member.

To get a taste for the type of events we arrange, please have a look at this sample of previous events.
