Dear Fellow Circuiteer,
This has been a sad week for the North Eastern Circuit with the death of two well-loved members Matthew Collins and Lorna Cole. You will all have read the heartfelt tribute paid to Matthew that was circulated earlier in the week, and it is right that I now say a little more about Lorna.
I had a delightful evening with old friends reminiscing about our times as NE Circuit Junior. Feeling a little old as my stint was nearly 20 years ago. Heartened to see that our Circuit continues to diversify and to go from strength to strength. @NECircuitleader https://t.co/tRyPKsZp0C
First Bar Council meeting of 2022 this morning. Delighted to support @BarCouncilChair Mark Fenhalls QC as he leads his first meeting. Good to see Solicitor General @AlexChalkChelt attending to hear the concerns of the profession expressed - constructive engagement is essential
Congratulations to all! https://t.co/eEBFidvzn8
NEC Diversity & Equality Trailer on Vimeo - I know I’m rather biased but I think this trailer looks pretty amazing - can’t wait to see the whole thing. Well done @necircuit. https://t.co/dFUw5ZKs23
