European Junior Lawyers
European Junior Lawyers
An inaugural European Initiative meeting was held in February 2010 which established the European Junior Lawyers Group (“EJL”) which is a subgroup of Mackrell International (“MI”). The aim of the EJL is to ensure the continued success of MI by encouraging strong relationships between the junior members of MI.
The group has an annual meeting to discuss initiatives, growth and to develop relationships between its members, which takes place on the first day of the annual EMEA conference.
We have so far had three successful meetings, the first in Vienna in September 2010, in Warsaw in September 2011 and a meeting in Munich in October 2012.
We hope that as many junior lawyers as possible are able to attend future meetings and a key goal of the EJL is to ensure at least one junior lawyer from each MI firm in the network attends the events in the future. Please help us to reach this goal by nominating yourself or a colleague for attendance.
Please see the Minutes EJL Warsaw Sept 2011 for further information on the business of the meeting.
Please see the Minutes European Junior Lawyer Group Munich 5 October 2012 doc for information on the matters discussed.
We continue to have strong support from the International Committee, the Secretariat and the MI members as a whole are very much committed to assisting the growth of the EJL. We are very thankful for this support.
NEWS: The EJL Group has the opportunity for a nominee to complete a Gulf for Good Challenge in the name of Mackrell International. As a result of some pro bono work carried out by Mackrell Turner Garrett (London), the subscription fee has kindly been waived but the participant is encouraged to raise funds for this worthwhile charity.
