Junior law firm staff take the lead at local association

Imogen Fleur and Joshua Haye

A solicitor from CooperBurnett Solicitors in Tunbridge Wells has been voted in as President of the Kent Junior Lawyers Division (JLD) for a second year.

Solicitor Imogen Fleur is part of the firm’s Commercial Property team and will be joined on the committee by Paralegal Joshua Haye, who will take on the role of IT Coordinator at the JLD.

Kent JLD comes under The Law Society of England and Wales and organises events to support the professional development of junior legal professionals, helping them to develop their vocational skills and widen their professional network.

Under Imogen’s presidency last year, the committee organised five sell-out events and expanded their membership to reach more students at The University of Kent.

Imogen also oversaw the Achievement Awards at the Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge District Law Society’s Annual Dinner, in addition to raising money for Nourish Community Foodbank in Tunbridge Wells.

Describing her plans for the year, Imogen said: “We are looking forward to building on the hard work and success of last year’s committee and hope to put on another fantastic set of events
for Kent’s junior lawyers.

“Joshua is such an asset to have on the committee. Alongside working at CooperBurnett, he is a student at the University of Kent and can provide us with an insight as to what would be beneficial to students and spread awareness to other students of the support we offer.”

Imogen added: “Moving forward, I am keen to provide our members with further networking events; education as to the support available for junior lawyers; a strong focus on professional development and further expansion of our membership across Kent, including an emphasis on university students.”
