In brief: Fund raising for Shelter's own lawyer

Young members of the profession have raised more than £10,000 towards funding a new solicitor for Shelter through a series of quiz nights across the UK and Brussels. The National Campaign for Homeless People is now seeking a further £28,000 to fund the lawyer who will work on major test cases aimed at fighting for the rights of homeless people. Sixteen branches of the Young Solicitors Group participated in the event, with a Brussels team raising the most money – £763.
