Bournemouth & District Law Society offers a wide range of benefits to its members including CPD lectures and webinars, discounts on gym membership and wine (I know which I’d prefer …) and year round social activities.

While the membership is, naturally enough, predominantly solicitors, CILEx lawyers (i.e. Fellows and indeed any other lawyers who are ‘authorised persons’ under the Legal Services Act) may join as Associate Members.

Exam ‘Sponsorship’ Sought

27 October 2015 at 9:59 am | Posted in General | Leave a comment

One of our branch members is seeking ‘sponsorship’ for her final CILEx exams in return for her providing some legal support services for a few hours a month.

Jane Blick is an inactive Associate Member of CILEx with a Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law & Practice and currently works for the NHS.

She is looking to finish her qualification and return to a legal practice but has not worked in a law firm since 2008. She is therefore looking to do a small amount of work free each month in return for sponsorship in order that she can do the Level 6 exams and complete the qualification. She has previously worked in Family and Conveyancing but would be happy to help out in any area.

If you would like further information and/or her CV, please contact her by email at She lives in the Christchurch, Dorset area but would be willing to travel around the immediate area.

Join us for the Great Legal Quiz 2015 – 4 November 2015

17 September 2015 at 10:12 am | Posted in General | Leave a comment


This year the Great Legal Quiz is part of National Pro Bono Week (2-6 November 2015). Have fun whilst doing your part to help support those most in need of specialist free legal advice and help.

Come along to the Cliff pub in Canford Cliffs on 4 November to enter!

Do not fear – the quiz questions are not all legal and are instead based around general knowledge so anyone is welcome to come along; lawyers, support staff, students, legal advice providers, friends and family are all welcome. It is your choice who is in your quiz teams. You will compete with teams across the country who will be completing the same quiz simultaneously.

The quiz comprises of 8 rounds of 10 questions, the total time taken will depend on how quickly you whizz through the questions and how many breaks you take etc. We would usually advise to leave at least an hour and a half for the full quiz.

There is no limit on team size but be warned, you may be ‘fined’ if the Quiz Master decides your team is too large and so you have an unfair advantage!

The top score will be submitted to the London Legal Support Trust and there will be prizes for the highest scoring team in the country and the highest fund raising quiz organisers.

Entry costs £5 per person and there is food available to order (not included in the entrance price) whilst you complete the quiz.

Arrive from 6.30pm – the quiz will begin at 7pm.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Emily at to confirm how many will be on your team on the night.
