With reference to the article "Buggins strikes again in Law Society election controversy", (The Lawyer, 3 February), the society has decided not to consider any changes to its bylaws which would prevent contested elections.
The council of the Law Society will, in March, debate proposals for an informal procedure for candidates seeking election only to the office of deputy vice-president.
