Lawyers for Lawyers has received a donation of €6.750 from the professionals who are connected to the ‘Beroepsopleiding Advocaten’, the vocational training for lawyers by the Netherlands Bar. The executive organization for the Beroepsopleiding Advocaten offered various Christmas gift options to their professionals, and many of them opted for a donation to Lawyers for Lawyers!
Recently, our board member Judith Lichtenberg was welcomed at the office of the executive organization for the Beroepsopleiding Advocaten to receive the cheque. The cheque was handed over by education managers Elodie Carmiggelt and Werner Tijsse Claase.
Lawyers for Lawyers would like to thank the professionals who are connected to the Beroepsopleiding Advocaten for their donations and the executive organization for including us in their Christmas gift action.
