I write with reference to Mr Mears' proposed reforms. Let's face it, titles can be misleading.
In reality, the secretary general is the chief executive and the president is a non-executive chairman.
Many practitioners want the roles to be reversed. If the president became the chief executive and served for a five-year term, then there would be no need for a secretary general.
Surely this is a positive way in which Mr Mears can save the Law Society's money – by relieving the organisation's most expensive employee.
