Wright Hassall’s Charlotte Kahrman appointed Chair of the Warwickshire Junior Lawyers Division

A solicitor at one of Warwickshire’s leading law firms has been appointed as the new Chair of a group which supports young lawyers in the region.

Charlotte Kahrman says she wants to increase young lawyers’ access to support after starting her two-year term as Chair of the Warwickshire Junior Lawyers Division (WJLD).

The group – which is part of the Warwickshire Law Society – provides legal training, professional and personal skills through seminars and workshops, and members range from university students, paralegals, legal executives and solicitors up to five years’ post-qualification.

Among her top priorities is to return in-person events to pre-Covid levels and launch a new mentorship scheme to help impart advice to the next generation of lawyers.

Charlotte, who is part of the Contentious Probate team at Leamington Spa-based Wright Hassall, joins colleagues Sarah Price and Lucy Compton at the WJLD, who hold the roles of Academic Officer and Vice-Chair respectively.

She said: “It’s a really exciting time to lead the WJLD – a group which plays such an important role for young lawyers.

“It can be a little bit daunting when you are a junior professional so it is a really valuable network for young lawyers in like-minded positions to share experiences and advice in an informal setting.

“As a newly-qualified solicitor myself, I know that when you are just starting out in your career, meeting new people who can support you on your journey through the law can be an invaluable resource.

“Unfortunately, Covid scuppered all face-to-face events but we’re really keen to get these moving again and return them to pre-Covid levels, and I am also hoping to build new relationships and work with our region’s universities to help share advice and our own experiences with the next generation through a new mentorship scheme with students.”

“I am looking forward to working with Sarah, Lucy and the rest of the committee over the next two years.”
