In brief: Lawyers hit the airwaves for Law Week

Preparations for the Law Society's National Law Week (starting 22 May) are building up, with increasing numbers of local societies adding their names to the list of participants. Events include a stand by Manchester Law Society with a rota of solicitors giving free advice, a special legal advice centre for the Afro-Caribbean community run by the Suffolk and North Essex society and a limerick competition on local radio by Devon and Exeter, with listeners providing the rest of “There was a solicitor from…”. The society's eastern region office is organising features on local radio stations on the theme “A day in the life of a local solicitor”.
