Advent Calendar

Advent Ca-law-ndar


We are delighted to support the 2021 Women in Criminal Law Advent Calendar.

Every working day at 9am, Women in Criminal Law will post the day’s present(s) on their Twitter and LinkedIn pages. At 6pm, prize entry for that day will close and the Legal Elves will choose a winner – or winners – at random.

To enter, comment on the post with your name.

(If you don’t have Twitter or Linkedin you can also email on the day of the prize you’d like to win – strictly between 9am-6pm that day). All routes of entry will have the same chance of winning.

You must be a WICL member to enter. The winner’s membership will be confirmed before they can be confirmed and notified by Mother Christmas herself! 

Today’s (6th December 2021) prize is six mini-pupillages for prospective criminal pupils.

The Mountford Chambers prize will be announced on Wednesday 8th December.
