At the Annual General Meeting I set out my objectives for the 2018/19 year:
- To focus on women in the profession and the wider issues of diversity;
- To continue to build upon the excellent social and networking events arranged by the society and to reach out to the many in-house lawyers in Sussex;
- To work closely with the Junior Lawyers Division, welcome those individuals who are new to the profession and to continue to offer our support as the division grows their network and;
- Ensure the Sussex Law Society maintains its strong links with other local societies and other professional networks.
As a profession, we are evolving and changing at a rate that I feel is unprecedented. The challenge of staying ahead of the game and remaining competitive is increasingly more difficult. The work of the Sussex Law Society in providing a platform for members to meet and network with each other, share ideas and provide support, remains vitally important.
I look forward to keeping you updated throughout my presidency. As solicitors, we work to improve the society we live in and the Sussex Law Society is a vital link for the profession to make a positive difference together.
