Solicitors… can you help?

Redland Green School in Bristol are desperately trying to secure a local solicitor to attend their forthcoming careers fair on 6 February

 They have not yet been successful in securing an individual.  The school is keen to have a representative from the solicitors’ profession as they have received a number of enquiries from students.  The school has stressed that whilst the event is scheduled from 8.45am-2.30pm they are happy for the individual to attend for a shorter period if that was more convenient.

If you are interested please see the letter from the school and reply slip for more details.
