Sydney’s legal brainiacs prepare for battle
SYDNEY FIRMS are set to battle it out at an inter-firm quiz-night for the title of “brainiest law firm”.
The inaugural Cicero Cup, organised by the recruitment company Cicero, will feature teams of eight lawyers vying for the prestigious title by answering both general knowledge and specialist legal knowledge questions.
The event is being held at the Trust Lounge in the Equilibrium Hotel at World Square on Thursday 21 June, and will raise funds for Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect).
One in every 160 Australians have an autism disorder and Aspect is the largest autism-specific service provider in Australia, providing information services, education, and research through partnerships with people with autism and their families and communities.
Jon Gill, managing director of Cicero, said they are aiming to raise $10,000 on the night and many law firms have already signed up.
“It should be a fun night and not only will we be raising funds, but it’s also giving lawyers a chance to let their hair down. And it’s a chance to prove it’s not all about work, work, work,” he said.
Places are still available for firms wishing to enter and the closing date for registration is 15 June.
