On 15 December the Joint Brussels Office of the Law Societies arranged a visit to the Court of Justice of the European Union. Seconded trainee solicitors met with Advocate General, Eleanor Sharpston QC, and Judge, Ian Forrester QC.

The trainees also attended a hearing in the Grand Chamber, were given a tour of the courts and had lunch with Advocate General Eleanor Sharpston and Ian Forrester QC, the UK judge at the General Court of the EU. The unique opportunity to have lunch with the two highly respected members of the court was a particular highlight of the day which was filled with lively debate and discussion.
