Local AWB group

John Malpas reports

Women barristers on the western circuit are being invited to join a branch group of the Association of Women Barristers. The new Western Regional Group of the association is being set up by barrister Helen Fields of 18 Carlton Crescent in Southampton. "The AWB organises very interesting events but it is difficult to get into London to attend them," said Fields. "I thought it would be a good idea to set up a local support and information network."

AWB chair Barbara Hewson has left Four Raymond Buildings to join 12 Gray's Inn Square.
