Informals London Christmas Social: TONIGHT

Tonight – 6:00pm – CIPA Hall (95 Chancery Lane, WC2A 1DT)

Christmas has come around again so it’s time to dust off your Santa hats and get yourselves down to CIPA Hall for a festive drink and a mince pie. Make the most of the Christmas season and squeeze in another cheeky drinks event! Come down after work and enjoy a few drinks and those who are still around later on can reconvene in a local pub. Looking forward to seeing you there.

Just let us know if you have any questions.

CIPA Informals Foundation Lectures Timetable – Summer 2016

Thank you to all those who have been coming to the Foundation Lectures so far! We are now over halfway through the series, but there are still plenty of topics left to cover.

As always, the lectures will be taking place in CIPA Hall, starting at 5.30pm. After the lecture we will head down to the Knights Templar pub. This is an excellent opportunity to meet trainees from other firms, and if you have not yet made the trip I would encourage you to do so.

The timetable for the lectures is as follows. Any changes to this will be posted on the blog, so keep an eye out!
