Young Fraud Lawyers Launch in Yorkshire

On 25 August 2011 the Young Fraud Lawyers in the North Association, a non-profit organisation, launches in Yorkshire having had a successful life in Manchester over the last 5 years.

Established in 2006 by Michaela Mallin of Stephen Lickrish & Associates, the YFLNA has the laudable aim of improving it's members careers. Members can be either solicitors, barristers, accountants or any other linked professionals as long as they have less than 10 years experience of working in fraud, be it civil or criminal.

Current Chairperson Richard Veni, of Stephen Lickrish & Associates, states that "the YFLNA achieves it's aim by 'providing a suitable arena in which up and coming professionals can improve through learning from senior experienced practitioners and gain valuable
contacts for the future'. "

Membership costs just £45 a year. Over the past years they have had the honour of holding seminars by many eminent speakers including, the Director of the SFO, the Head of the CPS Central Fraud Group, Charles Bott QC (Carmelite Chambers), Kennedy Talbot(joint author of Confiscation and the Proceeds of Crime, contributing editor to Civil Procedure -the White Book) as well as representatives from the Insurance Fraud Bureau and the National Fraud Authority.

The YFLNA aims to cater for all your CPD needs by hosting monthly Discussion Groups which attract 1CPD and regular seminars which tend to attract 2CPD. Additionally they host socials at which they strongly encourage networking. ALL of these events are free to members.

Now hoping to replicate their Lancashire success in Yorkshire YFLNA have teamed up with St Pauls Chambers to officially launch themselves at the Oracle Bar, Brewery Place, Leeds, on the 25th August 2011.

If you are interested in joining the YFLNA or attending the free event on the 25th please contact Sian Hall, of Farleys Solicitors LLP at sian.hall@farleys.com who will be delighted to answer any questions you may have.
