YSG slams Law Soc over new clause

The Young Solicitors’ Group (YSG) has hit out at the Law Society after being compelled to enter into the Recognised Groups Agreement. The YSG was told by the Law Society that it had to sign the terms of the agreement by 30 May or risk losing its annual grant. A controversial clause requires the YSG to write to all its members to ask them if they want to be part of the group, a clause which does not apply to the Law Society itself.
