A November to remember

November is proving a standout month for Kent Law Society. The Tucker Millward Memorial Lecture returned after a two-year absence with a real wow on Thursday 8 November. Guest speaker HHJ Sarah Davies took a packed audience at the University of Kent's Grimwood Theatre, on a colourful, rip-roaring and inspiring ride through her varied and wonderful career. She told the audience: "I cannot believe I got to do a job that's interesting, well paid, and so much fun." Among much well-received wisdom, she also advised the students gathered: "If you want to do something badly enough, you will do it. You never know what's going to come your way - accept every experience offered to you; they will all be useful."
Our grateful thanks go to HHJ Sarah Davies (centre left) Tucker Millward Memorial Lecture 2022for accepting the invitation to speak and giving up so much of her time, and to Head of Kent Law School Professor Rosemary Hunter (pictured left) with KLS President Nick Fairweather, for hosting the lecture as well as to everyone who attended and stayed on afterwards to catch up and enjoy the buffet.

Earlier the same day at the annual Kent Law Fair held at Eliot College within the University of Kent, Kent Law Society SPC member Jon Pitt, and President Nick Fairweather, met and talked to students at the Kent Law Society stand about the many and varied career routes available to them within the legal profession.
The Fair (pictured right) ran for five hours and attracted over 600 students. 

Over 50 students took the opportunity to attend the special speed networking session held on 17 November at University of Kent organised by KLS Junior Lawyers Committee members Tara Kaby and Paige Harrison. 
Each student 'rotated' tables eight times (pictured below) to ensure they met as many professionals as possible and were able to question the lawyers about all of the different areas of law they represented. 
We would like to thank the firms and professionals who gave up their time to support this amazing initiative: Becket Chambers, Boys and Maughan, Brachers, Fairweathers, Furley Page, Girlings, Kingsfords, Robinson Alfree, Stilwell & Singleton, Tuckers and Whitehead Monckton.
