The NSW Young Lawyers Environmental Law Committee has held another successful annual trivia night, hosted by Martin Place Chambers and held at the Reserve Bank of Australia.

The decisive third round of the night in full swing
After a gruelling competition the teams from the Land and Environment Court and Martin Place Chambers were named the 2009 trivia champions, with $3300 being raised on the night for The Total Environment Centre.

This year's hotly contested competition boasted the highest number of participants to date, with teams from Martin Place Chambers, the Land and Environment Court of NSW, the District Court of NSW, the EDO, Pikes Lawyers, Henry Davis York, SIM-X, Deacons, Gadens, Wilshire Webb, the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water, City of Sydney and Holding Redlich battling it out for the top spot.

The event was sponsored by SIM-X, The Little General and Farage, and presenters for the evening were Matthew Baird from Third Floor Wentworth Chambers, Dr James Smith from Deacons, Rob Stokes, the Member for Pittwater, and Nathan Laird from the Department of Water and Energy.
