F-LEX News Bulletin
This month we have both some sad and exciting news for you.
Unfortunately, the F-LEX team have had to say goodbye to two of our wonderful team. Marija and Naoise have both left us as they start their LPC before their training contracts start in 2020. I am sure you will all join us in saying a massive thank you for all of their hard work and in wishing them the best of luck with both the LPC and their Training Contracts!
But out of the ashes… we are delighted to welcome Louie to the team. Louie has joined our Commercial Development Scheme in London. A recent LPC LLM graduate, Louie has assimilated into the team very quickly and has already taken charge of the office speaker system.
A massive well done to all of you that have completed degrees, masters, GDLs and LPCs over the course of the summer!
Be sure to email us to keep us up to date with what you have been doing and your achievements.
The F-LEX Book Club
In this new feature, we will be giving you our suggestions for some light reading that we think you will enjoy and find useful.
Our first recommendation is from F-LEX Associate Rebecca, who has chosen The Secret Barrister.
“The Secret Barrister is an extremely thought-provoking read, exposing the many cracks of our country’s criminal justice system. It opens one’s eyes to the pressing need to stop viewing the system as a someone thing that does not affect us and instead accept that we all pay the price for its failing.”
Many of you may already have read it but if not be sure to grab a copy and let us know what you think.
SQE Pilot 2
The SRA are looking for law students to take part in the SQE Pilot 2.
Its a fantastic opportunity to be part of the testing stages of the new qualification route for solicitors. Plus there is the opportunity to earn £300 plus a chance to a TC assessment day with a number of firms including, Browne Jacobsen, Mayer Brown and Mishcon de Reya.
Make sure you get your applications in by the 13th of September: https://www.sra.org.uk/sqe2
