The lineup for the 'battle of the bands' fundraising event, the LexFactor, has been released and tickets are now on sale.

Taking place on Thursday 12 March at Edinburgh Corn Exchange, the event promises to uncover a raft of seldom-seen musical skills residing in the legal profession. The bands bring together employees from a range of firms and organisations. Signed up so far are six pun-packed names:

A Flock of Legals – Shepherd & Wedderburn

The Argyll Cycle – Gilson Gray/ Ferguson & Co

The Submissions – Edinburgh Bar Association

The Paroling Stones – BTO/ Faculty of Advocates/ DWF

Bail'her' Swift – Marshall Law/ PDSO/ Weslo Housing, with the Law Society's President John Mulholland and CEO Lorna Jack

Blurness Paullice - Burness Paull

Each band will perform between four and five popular covers, which will guarantee a night of enjoyment for everyone attending. The bands will be judged (this is the legal profession!) by a panel and a Lexfactor 2020 winning group will be crowned at the end of the night. 

This event is open to everyone to attend. Perhaps it's a great opportunity to do something a bit different for your Thursday work drinks? Could you schedule a team social event? Maybe bring your family and friends along?

This event is generously supported by Lockton and TitleSolv and their funding means that 100% of the income from ticket sales will come to the Lawscot Foundation. This will be used to fund annual bursaries, a mentoring scheme and employability opportunities for our fantastic scholars. Tickets are £20 plus booking fee, with discounted student tickets available for £12.

Book your tickets now via the Eventbrite page.

Please note that this is a standing event, with unallocated seating dotted around the room.
