YOUR 2022
Committee

Find out more about our new Committee for 2021, who are looking forward to arranging a fantastic social calendar for you. 

The CJLD Committee is formed from a mixture of Trainees, Paralegals, Students and Legal Apprentices. If you would like to get in touch with any of us, we would love to hear from you!

Kristyna Petrosjanova

President

Kristyna is a second year Trainee Solicitor at Mills & Reeve LLP. As President of the CJLD, Kristyna is planning to reap the benefits of working from home by keeping some of this year’s events virtual. In 2021, this allowed many CJLD members to dial into events which they may have previously missed due to time and travel constraints. In addition to this, the 2022 committee is looking forward to putting on more of CJLD’s in person classics, such as punting and hopefully the CYPG/CJLD Summer Ball.
