ByLaw is the networking group for those who work in the Legal Profession in the Bristol and South West area who are LGBT. The network group meets regularly for both social occasions (like the forthcoming quiz) and also for talks. If you are LGBT and work in the legal environment (not necessarily as a fee earner) you would be welcomed at one of ByLaw’s forthcoming events.

ByLaw is sponsoring a film during Bristol Pride week (7th – 14th July). BYlaw is also holding a quiz evening on Thursday 19 July, once again at The Phoenix (1 Wellington Buildings, Champion Square, Bristol BS2 9DB). Champion Square is located between the Future Inns hotel on Temple Way and the Cabot Circus multi-storey car park.

Happy Hour at the Phoenix is between 6 and 7pm, so we will be meeting up from 6.30pm with the quiz starting at 7pm.

All are welcome, both individuals and teams. Entry to the quiz is £1 per person. Donations will also be invited on the night to an LGB charity or community centre (to be confirmed).

If you want to come to the quiz, please visit the website ( and click on “Book” for this event (under “What’s On”) or email to .
