Cardiff & District Law Society Annual Dinner 2017

Go to comments

This year’s CDLS Annual Dinner was the most spectacular yet, with more guests than ever from across Cardiff and South Wales to witness one of the most stunning productions we have ever hosted for Cardiff & District Law Society members.

Our guest speaker, broadcaster and presenter, Jeremy Bowen was very well received and kindly stayed with us for the duration of the evening. The presenting experience of Frances Donovan shone throughout the night and we were honoured that both VIPs helped us to present our annual awards.

We were also delighted to welcome our two charities #StayStrongForOws fund and Velindre Cancer Care to the event with some powerful videos that helped is raise even more for our two charities of the year.
Many congratulations to this year’s award winners: Richard Fisher who truly deserved being awarded the prestigious Sim

on Mumford Award; Lisa-Marie Knight, Acuity Legal who won Junior Lawyer of the Year Award and; Grace Palmer who won the LPC Student of the Year Award. We look forward seeing who wins next year!

  • Legal Network Wales (Champagne Reception Sponsor)
  • JLT (The President's VIP Reception Sponsor)
  • Lloyds Banking Group (Production Sponsor)
