THE LAW Society looks set to continue an expansion policy which was briefly put on hold during Martin Mears tenure.
Letters have been sent to law societies across the country asking them if they would like a regional office in their area. The Law Society, which believes regional offices can reinvigorate areas where societies are stagnating, wants to add to its five regional offices.

Newman estimates each office costs £80,000 annually.
