The Law Society has taken a shock piece of decisive action with a vehement and determined stance with regards to its - wait for it - post. Earlier this month it tried to hold elections for seats on its ruling council, but failed to get the ballot papers to members on time. Chief executive Janet Paraskeva wrote a strongly-worded letter to members, blaming the delay on the pesky Electoral Reform Service (ERS) and its DX service. "When it became apparentâ€¦ that these delays were occuring," she penned, "we agreed with the ERS to postpone the close of votingâ€¦ [and] insisted that ERS send a postcard at their own cost to the entire electorate in each constituency to inform them of this change." Now the Law Society has had a taste of victory against the administrative staff at the ERS, perhaps it will pluck up the courage to pick up the phone to those firms that take a liberal approach to Law Society conflicts rules. On yer guard, A&O.
