LAW Society presidential candidate Henry Hodge is among the speakers signed to address this year's annual Young Solicitors' Group conference.
The Quality of Life conference, being held in Nottingham next month, will cover topics including discrimination, sabbaticals, stress and managing and motivating lawyers.
Staged in conjunction with the Association of Women Solicitors, the Group for Solicitors with Disabilities and the Trainee Solicitors' Group, the event will run from 12-14 May, and includes a dinner and disco.
YSG chair Andy Unger says the group aims to "launch a debate that will encourage the profession to plan for its future at a time when the legal marketplace continues to evolve, patterns of employment are changing and new technology appears every day."
He adds: "Hitherto the legal profession has reacted to change rather than managed change."
Other speakers at the conference will include Simmons & Simmons employment partner Janet Gaymer, Liverpool University's Professor Avrom Sherr and Roger Smith of the Legal Action Group.
