Seasons’ greetings from Seth Roberts and Ben Oakley; we are the new CIPA Informals Regional Secretaries for Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties. We are taking over from Steven Pediani and Tim Kim, and we hope to continue their good work in arranging social events and tutorials for the trainees in the region.
We’re aiming to arrange informal get-togethers on at least a quarterly basis, and the first event will be in January, after the Christmas rush:
Date: 09 January 2014
Venue: Thai restaurant TBC (central Oxford)
Please let us know if you can make it. Once we have an idea of numbers we will be able to book the restaurant and see if we can get any good deals (like the free wine at the curry a while ago). There is also likely to be a small subsidy to the bill provided by CIPA, like there has been for these events in the past. We are aiming to make a booking on the 14 December, so if you could let us know if you would like to come along by then, that would be great.
If you know of anyone who has not been included in the mailing list, please forward this email to them and let us know. Although this is an Informals meeting, we do not want to exclude any qualified attorneys who may want to come along and socialise, so please feel free to invite anyone who wants to come!
We hope to see you on the 9 January.
