Law Society members have voted comprehensively against paying Law Society Council members. The resolution, forwarded at the society’s annual general meeting on 17 July, proposed that council members be paid £3,000 per annum, with subsidiary board chairs receiving an extra £6,000 and the treasurer £7,000. Backbench council members would receive an extra £3,000. The move would have cost the society £219,000. But as reported last month in the society’s notices, of nearly 20,000 Law Society members who voted in the postal ballot, 65.1 per cent rejected the plan. Joanne O’Connor
