An Impeteus for change

The papers for the Law Society Council meeting on 21 September include my paper What is wrong with the Law Society? What are we going to do about it? – backed up by two resolutions urging a programme of action.

One resolution proposes a review of the way in which the society is organised with a view to making it more effective. The other proposes a

review of its activities, with a view to making them more focused and cost-effective.

The paper was produced before the election, not as a reaction to it. I did vote for Martin Mears, but I hope the election will provide the impetus for changes which many council members have been seeking.
