Jefferies Solicitors - afterA solicitors firm in Altrincham has raised more than £3,500 for charity by running the Pretty Muddy Race for Life.

The 17-strong team from Jefferies Solicitors raised the substantial sum of money for Cancer Research UK, in memory of their good friend and colleague, Michelle Read.

Led by director Nina Ramsden, the team also included Michelle’s three sisters, one of who also works at Jefferies Solicitors.

The pink-themed muddy obstacle 5k course attracted 6,000 women from across the region at the event in Tatton Park.

The compensation specialist practice, which was established in 1993, is dedicated to supporting charities and regularly takes part in fundraising activity, raising thousands of pounds over the years.

Nina Ramsden, director at Jefferies Solicitors, says: “Cancer Research UK is a charity that is close to our hearts as we recently lost a very good friend and colleague to cancer. Michelle was an inspiration to us all – she would’ve been the first person to take up this challenge if it meant money was raised to help the lives of others.

“Raising over £3,500 for charity is a great achievement and is testament to how well-loved Michelle was. We’re grateful to all the staff at Jefferies Solicitors who took part, as well as those who have kindly sponsored us, helping Cancer Research to save lives.”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
