The Law Society is set to make a further 38 members of staff redundant as it continues to cut costs, The Lawyer can reveal.
The society announced the redundancies this morning (Monday 4 December). The news follows an earlier redundancy programme in May this year, when 11 members of staff were made redundant and a further 12 vacant posts were frozen.
A spokesperson for the Law Society said no detailed comment could be made, but that decisions were being taken this week.
The cuts only affect the society’s representative function and not the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
The redundancies earlier in the year came after the Law Society’s ‘Have Your Say’ consultation of the profession, which showed that solicitors did not think highly of many of the society’s functions.
