  • If you lose a vote of no confidence, you either resign or kill everyone who supported the vote. The latter is frowned on these days.

    For the Society to reject a profession-wide vote on costs grounds is disgraceful. Does the leadership of the Society not realise that, having lost the vote of no confidence, (i) it is no longer in a credible position to make decisions about how the Society's money should be spent and (ii) it cannot make a decision about the need for another vote, because it has an obvious conflict of interest on that front?

  • The No confidence vote will definitely affects the Law Society. It is better for those involved to clear all of the issues even after that Special General Meeting they had. We all know that lack of Communications will lead to a misunderstanding, that’s why Lawyers have to communicate always to achieve good working relationships between them and Chancery Lane Officials.

  • This motion is nonsense. It's a small bunch of criminal lawyers trying to dismantle an organisation supposed to represent all lawyers.
