Quizzing for justice
I was delighted to host the Great Virtual Legal Quiz last week.
This started with a conversation with my contact at the Access to Justice Foundation and the CEO of Liverpool Law Society. We decided to give it a try as there can be no Legal Walk because of the lockdown. The Foundation helped with the admin and London Legal Support Trust gave us some questions. I added some of my own. We were not sure what the response would be. In fact it was a bit slow at first. Eventually we had 64 quizzers across 16 teams.
We had questions from general knwoledge, music, current affairs, Liverpool (the city!) and the usual picture quiz. It was great fun and the event raised just over £1400.00 for the Community Justice Fund which is supporting agencies providing free legal advice to those i need during the Covid-19 crisis.
It was an intereesting challenge presenting a quiz remotely. It was even more challenging for the team of markers who deserve a medal for collecting and collating answers by email and giving us a result! For the record, Peter Kneale Solicitors from Liverpool were the winners.
