Press Release – CJC Reception 16/04/2014

A Reception for more than 200 people, hosted by the Vice-Chancellor of the County Palatine of Lancaster and the local specialist Chancery, Mercantile, and TCC judges, together with the Northern Chancery and Northern Circuit Commercial Bar Associations and also attended by the Judges in Charge of the Commercial and Technology and Construction Courts and other senior judges, is to be held at the Civil Justice Centre, Manchester, with the aim of promoting links between the judiciary, local chancery/commercial practitioners and the business community in the North West.

Drinks and canapés will be served from 6.00-9.00pm on Thursday 16 April in the Atrium of the Civil Justice Centre, Bridge Street, Manchester.

Mark Cawson QC, Chairman of the Northern Chancery Bar Association said: “It is now 6 years since the Civil Justice Centre opened and there was a similar extremely successful event to celebrate the opening in March 2008. This provides a fantastic opportunity to bring together the judiciary and practitioners from our region and to remind local businesses and commerce that there is a wealth of talent and experience right here in the North West. There is really no need to take commercial work to London at all. It is good to see the CJC opening its doors to local practitioners and the business community in this way and I would encourage everyone to get a flavour for themselves of the high profile cases being dealt with in the CJC and to witness our down to earth, no-nonsense approach.”
