Jellied squeals

Following on from this year’s nationwide extravaganza for Comic Relief earlier this month, when Freshfields’ lawyers got to play Scalextric, Linklaters partner Gillian Chapman went to lunch in a red wig and Hawaiian ra-ra skirt and Clifford Chance senior partner Stuart Popham donned a red nose in the name of charity (, 16 March), Tulkinghorn thought readers might enjoy a peek at some of the other stuff game lawyers across the country got up to.

Such as Geordie faves Ward Hadaway, where one of its legal secretaries, Pamela Wood, warmed up for the Women’s World Snooker Championships with a 10-hour charity marathon to raise £350 for Comic Relief.

Tulkinghorn’s favourite, however, came from the College of Law in Guildford, where students indulged in a spot of jelly wrestling. A trifle over the top?
