A big thank you to those who took part!
A big thanks to teams from Ben Hoare Bell LLP, Bond Dickinson, Burnetts Solicitors, CILEx Newcastle Branch, European Legal Students Association (Newcastle), Hartlepool CAB, Irwin Mitchell, Newcastle Law Centre, and Northumbria University & The Personal Support Unit (Newcastle)
Topping the fundraising leader board in the North East so far are Northumbria University who raised an amazing £164.00! However, funds are still coming in and we’re confident that this will be the most successful Great Legal Quiz yet!
All teams did a great job in raising money, and we are very grateful to everyone for pulling out all the stops to raise as much money as possible to support access to justice in the North East.
The charities supported by The Great Legal Quiz help thousands of people every year gain access to justice. These charities are often the last resort for people facing difficult and distressing legal circumstances but without the resources to pay for private legal advice. Without this charitable work many vulnerable people would be left alone to navigate the court and justice system without any advice or support.
The national winners will be announced very shortly – watch this space!
