The Sheffield Law Society elects a new president – welcome Steve!
CRA Consultants are proud to be the official recruiters to the Sheffield and District Incorporated Law Society. The Law society promotes the interests of lawyers in the Sheffield, Rotherham and surrounding regions whilst offering helpful facilities such as a legal library, an information service and legal training. Founded in 1875, it has been a longstanding support system to the profession and plays a key role in developing relationships within the legal community. The aim of the society, which is elected annually, is to offer members new and exciting events, seminars and workshops that are aimed at developing skills, to offer advice and to expand their professional network.
The Society recently held its one hundred and thirty eighth Annual General Meeting in which the President, Giles Searby summarised the years events and appointed the new President. Giles declared that across the course of the year the Society had hosted 39 training courses for 494 delegates (This is a massive achievement with ever-growing competition from various free webinars and in-house courses run by larger firms). He was also pleased to announce that the Society had raised £2,500 for each of its chosen charities (Rain Rescue and Roundabout) with the memorial dinner held for Neil Thompson raising just over £4230. Mr Steven Dawson the current vice president was then elected as president for the ensuing year. Steven concluded with his visions for the coming year, these included building stronger relationships with the surrounding Law Societies and improve the existing links with the Universities to strengthen the Societies foundations.
Here at CRA we are extremely passionate about the legal profession. With all of our recruitment consultants having legal roots we fully appreciate the importance and significance of these support functions. One of the ways we work together with the Law Society is through the business networking events they host. Our specialist consultants are always eager to meet with old or new talent and more than willing to share their local knowledge of the industry. The events are also aimed at graduates/young professionals who want to raise their profiles across the Legal community. So whether you’re wanting like-minded company or to share your experiences, knowledge and expertise across the Legal community we eagerly encourage all Legal professionals to join us at future events.
The next event will be “a night at the dogs” – a celebration of Yorkshire at the infamous Owlerton Stadium. The Law Society has booked an executive box with a drinks reception on arrival and full buffet spread at only £20 per person. It will be taking place on Tuesday the 8th of July, to make a booking contact Elizabeth French on 01142723655 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
