The 2019 London Legal Walk will take place on Monday 17th June 2019 from 4.30pm. As in previous years, the FBLS is keen on building a team and would like to invite you to join!
This is a unique opportunity to join more than 8,000 members of the legal profession to raise much-needed money for free legal advice agencies.
Please let us know (by email) should you wish to attend so that we can start building our team and for security purposes.
Limited tee-shirts will be available prior to the walk. You can pre-order one for £10 before 15 April 2019 by email providing your size (S, M, L, XL, 2XL) and your payment method (cheque, PayPal, Bank transfert).
