As well as our busy President's Annual Dinner in April / May each year, the Society organises regular smaller social events. Events include regular socials and networking evenings to take advantage of leading discounts at leading Cardiff bars and restaurants (and to connect members), organising the annual Music / Concert Racenight at the Chepstow Racecourse; and (supporting the Confederation of South Wales Law Societies) a fabulous “Summer Soiree”. In the past 12 months we have also organised very well-attended charity quiz nights, a Children's Christmas Party in December and we are just about to launch our first charity golf event. See our Events page for more!
