FUNDERS AND SUPPORTERS

Jordans Solicitors

“Jordan’s Solicitors opened nearly 70 years ago. We are a modern and energetic law firm, serving both the business community and private individuals across a broad range of specialisms. Jordan’s Solicitors was the first legal practice in the Kirklees area to be awarded the Law Society’s prestigious Lexcel Quality Mark. This practice management standard is only awarded to solicitors who meet the highest management and customer care standards.

Jordans Solicitors Wakefield has run its own sixth-form debating competition for schools and colleges since 2011, aimed at encouraging life skills in analysis and public speaking while engaging young people in contemporary social and political issues. From 2015, Jordans adopted the Debating Matters format and invited DM Judging Partners The Leeds Salon to work with them to help develop and run their competition. Jordans competition involves a series of qualifying rounds held in the autumn leading to the final, which this year will be held at The Hepworth Wakefield on 6th December, and which is also the Wakefield Qualifying Round.”
