Jefferies Solicitors hike up Snowdon for charity

Jefferies Solicitors has raised nearly £1,000 for charity by running the Manchester Marathon and hiking up Snowdon.

The charitable team at the Altrincham-based solicitors firm has run and walked 35 miles altogether for their chosen charity – The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust.

Four keen runners took part in the Manchester marathon on 10 April led by director Nina Ramsden, and a 19-strong team took part in the Snowdon climb on 23 April.

CAFT is Jefferies Solicitors’ chosen charity and the team has been committed to fundraising on its behalf for several years.

Nina Ramsden comments: “Running and walking over 35 miles across both events was certainly challenging but it was a great opportunity to raise money for a charity that’s close to our hearts.

“We have been involved with CAFT for many years and we’re proud to be helping such an important charity in the community.”

CAFT was established in 1985 by Founding Patron Tim Grundy. It is based in the grounds of a beautiful 17th Century Farmhouse in Millington, Cheshire and offers free adventure breaks and activities to children who are disadvantaged by illness, disability and poverty.

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.
