Our last event in Manchester was an informal social in December 2018, with two committee members chatting with members about what YLAL's all about, as well as sharing ideas about forthcoming events. Thanks to all who came. 

Sheffield

The last event in Sheffield was our annual involvement with the Great Legal Quiz, on Thursday 1 November 2018. YLAL raised funds for the Yorkshire Legal Support Trust as part of the national Great Legal Quiz. All money raised will go to front line legal advice charities who deliver help and support to vulnerable people in desperate need of specialist advice.
