Editorial Bulletin January 2019

Thank goodness – back into some sort of routine. Time to read all those healthy recipes and watch some exercise DVD’s in the vain hope that by just showing willing those extra Christmas pounds will just melt away. I have also discovered the meaning of true terror as the newly 17 year old grumpy teenager takes to the roads. I have been mainly trying not to look alarmed whilst he takes his eyes off the road for what seems like an eternity to look at the gear stick to find third gear and trying not to let him see me pumping that imaginary brake with my right foot whilst complimenting him on how close he is to the parked car.

The Quiz (sponsored by Severn Trent Searches) was a huge success – a near sell out. Sad to say that Peter and Christine will not be setting the Quiz this year – perhaps they will put in a team? Be assured however that plans are in place to retain this popular event.

Nomination forms have been sent out for the DDLS Legal Awards. If you have any questions or need the forms re-sending then please e-mail me. The Annual Dinner will take place on Friday 26th April 2019 at Pride Park so get the date into your diary. We have the budget for a speaker this year and I can confidently say that it will be entertaining.

The Debate Competition is underway. The Derby University law student mentors have certainly had an impact this year as the standard of the debates has been incredible. The Final is on the 6th March 2019 from 4pm at the Copperbox Building. Please make a note to attend if you can. 

We are hoping to re-arrange the visit from Christina Blacklaws for April.  As soon as arrangements are in place I will e-mail details round to members.
