The London Legal Walk returns on June 17th The London Legal Support Trust is holding its 15th annual London Legal Walk, and is calling for teams from the legal sector to sign up and participate in the event.

T

he after work walk has two routes, both starting on Carey Street, next to the iconic Royal Courts of Justice. Choose either the Parks Route, or the River route, and start the walk anytime between 4pm and 7pm on the day itself. The walk finishes with a lively street party back on Carey Street, where there will be food vendors, fire jugglers and musicians waiting to celebrate your arrival! Each walker will also receive a free drinks token. The London Legal Walk is the biggest event of the legal calendar; as such, it is a busy and exciting event to spend with co-workers and friends! Last year 13,000 people across 750 teams walked to raise funds for this extremely worthwhile cause, raising a record breaking £830,000. In 2019, the London Legal Support Trust hope to break this record again with the support of those working in the legal sector in and around London. There are already thousands of walkers from across the City signed up to take part. Will you join the Lord Chief Justice, Lady Hale, and thousands of

others from chambers, courts, firms, and advice agencies, and walk on June 17th. There is no sign up fee, and no minimum fundraising target, so it couldn’t be easier to take part. Join in with your firm and enjoy a great summer walk, all to raise money for a meaningful cause. Simply sign up your team at: tinyurl.com/LLSTLLW19. ■

The President's New Year Drinks Dawson Cornwell hosted the President's New Year Drinks. We heard from Ivy Wong of Lexoo about legal tech with a glimpse of how things might develop and the Gamlen Prize was presented by Michael Gillman . Forsters' trainee solicitor Timothy Evans won first prize and Alexandra Treacy was second. By coincidence, Alexandra is due to start her training contract with Forsters in September 2019. The Gamlen Prize was set up in 1991 under the Gamlen Charitable Trust in memory of St John Gamlen, the last of five generations of solicitors, and the Gamlen family. ■
