Early Career Virtual Networking Night

22nd October 2020, 5.30pm



“Ask the Court???” – Calling all early career professionals!

If you are in the first five years of your career, QELA invites you to join us (virtually) after work on Thursday, 22nd October 2020, for our next Early Career Networking Night.

The evening is a great opportunity to meet new colleagues and build your professional network within the environmental and planning law sector.  And this year, we are doing things differently!


This is your chance to ask the court any and all questions you may have!  During the registration process we’re asking you to submit your questions and we will put these to His Honour Judge Williamson QC on the night.  Don’t worry, we will keep all questions anonymous.


After hearing the responses from His Honour Judge Williamson QC, we will then break into “zoom rooms” to discuss how you’ve been coping in a litigation context during Covid19.  We’re also going to compile a list of what has worked well and what hasn’t during this time, to provide this feedback to the court.  Again, all responses will be kept anonymous.  


Don’t miss out on the chance to have your say!

Registration is open to QELA members in the early years of their career in planning and environmental law, as well as other associated professions.

Registration numbers are strictly limited, so be quick!
