  • A few things strike me immediately as indicative as to how far TLS is out of touch with the wishes and feelings of it's rank and file membership and the need for it's approach and culture to change so as to represent all of its membership effectively and independently without any allegations of incompetence,inefficacy,appeasement bias or cronyism towards small sections of its membership,its own vested interests,others' interests,viz:

    Even with the unusual "presence" of so many Council members it could not oppose the motion; ans t is already seeking to minimize the nature and impact of the vote (if any) for it's future conduct;and

    It still does not accept any responsibility that it has got any of its tactics wrong over legal aid cuts and other issues affecting it's membership and persists with the same old ineffective "business as usual then"approach;and

    Its institutional arrogance,complacency and self-interest is confirmed by it's media organ-The Gazette- which today reports the vote only in so far as TLS officers and their comments and speeches are concerned.Little if any reporting is made as to the motion or its proponents' comments and speeches.This brings into question whether or not the Gazette is merely being used/influenced as a media vehicle to self-fulfill the position of Chancery Lane only and is no longer one for reflecting the interests and views of the broad membership of the profession.

  • I think the Law Society is good.

    Sure there are some improvements that could be made, but I don't think a small pressure group represents the view of most lawyers.
