Social Events  

During the year there are a number of events organised by Derby & District Law Society. 
These include networking events which are a great opportunity for meeting local business professionals and others in the legal community. 
In addition we are looking to forge links with local schools and community groups and also take part in Charity Fund Raising Events.
