I’m really excited about this event that is planned for November 2015. It’s open to all those in roles aligned with ‘law work’, academics and students. It might seem a while off but given it’s the first of the kind, I’m sure the organisers would appreciate getting a feel for potential attendee numbers sooner rather than later. Here’s s slightly modified version of the invite:
You are all invited to attend the first Northern LAGLA Event on Saturday, 21st November 2015! The Lesbian and Gay Lawyers Association (‘LAGLA’) are a group committed to representing and celebrating LGBT diversity within the legal profession, be it in the world of solicitors, barristers, or academics.
This event will be in aid of creating a Northern LAGLA division, in order to help raise awareness of and represent support for LGBT legal professionals – so certainly not just for the LGBT! For this event to succeed it is important that we have non-LGBT law students, academics and professionals present – you are welcome to invite any friends who study law, (they don’t have to be based in Newcastle!) Not only will it be a celebration of the profession’s diversity, but an excellent networking opportunity with all types of legal workers including successful lawyers, barristers, members of the judiciary and academics. It will be a night filled with drinks, music and speakers to make sure that everyone has a great time.
Essentially, you can be part of history, a great night and we encourage everyone to show support.
