I recently had the pleasure of attending the Law Society’s Past President’s dinner, which was my first formal event as President of the Sussex Law Society. It reminded me of the history of the Sussex Law Society, which dates back to 1934! The chain of office has inscribed upon it all the names of the Past Presidents. Unsurprisingly, there are more male names than female, but I fully suspect that this imbalance will be addressed in the years to come.
I am delighted to say I have been given the honour of serving as President of the Sussex Law Society this year. I can only hope to do as well as Emma Weir during her successful and productive year as president. On behalf of the committee, I would like to thank Emma for her contribution and I personally look forward to working with her and all on the committee this year.
