Closes its doors in June 2013
What started as a three year project to promote Leeds as the largest legal centre outside of London, was extended by a further four years into a campaign which significantly contributed to establishing Leeds as a city of legal excellence both within the UK and overseas. Directors Alan, Rosemary and Deborah have now issued the final copy of Leeds Legal inform in which they thank their supporters and look back at the highlights. READ ISSUE 25 of LEEDS LEGAL INFORM
Leeds Legal was a unique partnership of the cream of the city’s legal profession and was the first campaign of its kind in the UK. It promoted the high levels of service, expertise and no nonsense advice and value for money provided by the city’s law firms.
Backed by the Law Society and the Leeds Law Society, Leeds legal was sponsored by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and was spear-headed by Leeds-based legal practices Clarion Solicitors LLP, DLA Piper, Lupton Fawcett and Pinsent Masons. It was also supported by Marketing Leeds, the Leeds Financial Services Initiative, Jet2.com, Millnet Northern, Hilton Leeds City hotel, and a number of associate sponsor law firms.
The campaign launched in April 2006 to attract more national and international clients to the city, positioning Leeds as a world-class destination for legal services.

LEEDS LAW SOCIETY’S EDUCATION WEEK
in association with AHEAD PARTNERSHIP
25-29 November 2013
Leeds Law Society are delighted to be hosting Education week this year, in association with Ahead Partnership, thereby continuing and building on the success of Leeds Legal’s achievement in forming one of the largest annual volunteering initiatives in Yorkshire for the legal sector.
In previous years it has facilitated over 807 volunteers of lawyers and support staff from the top leading law firms and legal organisations to give up more than 5,374 hours of their time by visiting over 50 schools in some of the most deprived communities in the city. All this, with the aim of empowering around 4,000 children to consider and develop their future career ambitions.

The initial meeting will be held at the Leeds Law Society offices in September. Please contact Ahead Partnership to register your involvement in this rewarding project. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
