Over 300 trainees from around Europe are expected to attend the first Euro Ball in London later this year.
The ball, co-organised by the national committee of the Trainee Solicitors Group and its London branches, will be held on the night of the group's annual international event Project Europe.
Staged at Westminster Boating on 8 July, the ball is expected to include a black tie buffet meal, jazz band, disco and themes from countries throughout Europe.
The TSG is seeking dual sponsorship for both the day and evening events, and international relations officer David Taylor says representatives from young lawyers' groups in Central and Eastern Europe will be invited. "This will be the first ball organised by trainee solicitors in London," says Taylor. "It is a great way of bringing all of the national groups together as well as introducing trainees to lawyers working in other parts of Europe."
