A series of bespoke events for the Welsh legal sector to mark St David’s Day 2021

We are delighted to announce our event programme, hosted to mark St David’s Day in 2021 and to celebrate the legal sector in Wales.

Our series of free, online events take place on Friday 26 February and Monday 1 March.

Our special St David’s Day events focus on business resilience, sustainability and diversity in the legal profession in Wales, building on the Justice Commission for Wales 2020 report recommendations to ensure Wales has a thriving and sustained legal sector to cater for the needs of the communities they serve.

Celebrating our first year!

Legal News Wales will also celebrate it’s first year since launching in 2020, within a week of the first full UK-wide lockdown. Since then, we are proud to have forged a unique position; in being the ONLY source of wales-specific legal news, insight and events created exclusively for the legal and affiliated sectors in Wales.

We partner with a number of legal organisations (view) and professional brands, including Brewin Dolphin and Yolk Recruitment, to create relevant, helpful content and events to support your legal practice, business and your clients.
