THE LEGAL CHRISTMAS MUSIC CONTEST 2018: RAISING MONEY FOR CHARITY: NAME THAT BAND
The Legal Christmas Music contest is back, for the third year running we will be helping charities. All that is required to enter is that you make, or agree you will make, a donation to a food bank: after that is (as ever) down to skill, talent and a large amount of luck. Once again there is a unique T-shirt available to the winner.
This year we are looking for the best title for a band (orchestra, choir, or musical ensemble of any kind) made up of lawyers. If you can get a Christmas theme in as well, all the better.
HOW TO ENTER
Just agree that you are going to make a donation to a foodbank (see section below). The donation can be via the collection baskets that many major supermarkets have in their premises.
Tweet your idea using the #Lexmas18 hashtag or put it on the comments section of this blog.
There are no entry criteria. You don’t have to be a lawyer to enter. You don’t have to be in the UK.
You can enter as an individual, as a group or even as a firm. (Bear in mind there is only one T shirt
THE CLOSING DATE (AND TIME)
The closing date is 4.00 pm on the 22nd December 2018.
THE JUDGING CRITERIA
There are no objective criteria (so far as I can tell). No form of entry has preference over another. All bets are off (or on). There is everything to play for.
I’m hoping to pass off the job of judging to a real live judge and some specialist assistants. They will have to remain anonymous to avoid any risk of lobbying, unnecessary skeleton arguments etc.
THE WINNER – GETS THE T-SHIRT …
The winner will get a specially designed T-Short “Legal Christmas Song Winner 2018” – with the winning title emblazoned on the front.
The judges’ decision will be final. No system of appeal exists. If you lose you can (and indeed must) complain on Twitter (or in the comments section below) that you were robbed. That will be your sole legal remedy.
DONATING TO A FOOD BANK
- A list of food banks are available here.
- Many major supermarkets have collection baskets.
- Both my chambers (Zenith in Leeds and Hardwicke in London) have food banks. At the moment (up to the 20th December) Hardwicke is collecting non-perishable food items and sanitary products for a Trussell Trust food bank.
