Latest JLD News

Posted by on 1st November 2017 in November 2017 |
Our role within the committee is to promote diversity in the legal profession by supporting and encouraging young people to consider joining the profession regardless of their background. For the past two years, the JLD has been working closely with law firms and schools in Devon and Somerset to break down the typical barriers to pursuing a career in law. This was done partly by offering the opportunity to final year GCSE and A-level students to undertake legal work experience with three law firms in Exeter.   How did we promote diversity?   This year the JLD ran an essay competition in local schools in Devon and Somerset. The essay topic was "Should gover...

President's Review - Stephen Mahoney and DASLS caption competition!

Posted by on 6th November 2018 in November 2018 |
As my September report suggested, the pace of Presidential duties has picked up again after a brief summer lull. October kicked off with the Joint Professions’ Networking Group meeting at the Mercure Rougemont Hotel, where Exeter City Council Chief Executive and Growth Director Karime Hassan gave an entertaining presentation on his role in the redevelopment of the city centre, from modest beginnings in Queen Street providing the template for the granite pavements and stainless steel seating of the Princesshay Shopping Centre.   At the Admissions Ceremony held at the Guildhall in Exeter on 8th October, 17 of our two counties’ newly qualified solicitors rec...

Reach for the STARs?

Posted by on 31st October 2019 in November 2019 |
  The remodelled regulatory toolkit from the SRA is to be launched on 25 November 2019. Called the SRA Standards and Regulations, (or STARs for short), its tone is transitional and evolutionary as opposed to revolutionary. However, it does provide some very strong messages about what is expected from us. Compliance professionals employed in SRA-authorised firms should be making preparations to support their colleagues make a safe and appropriate switch to this new regulatory toolkit.   The STARs signify phase two of the SRA’s regulatory relationship with us. Phase 1 was introduced by the SRA in 2011 with the SRA Handbook. This was a revolutionary document...

President's Review - Nigel Lyons

Posted by on 31st October 2019 in November 2019 |
Dear All   Gosh this year is now galloping by. The clocks went back last month and before long it will be Christmas.   I have certainly had an exciting few months travelling to visit a number of the local law societies.     I had a great time at the Plymouth Law Society (PLS) annual dinner at the beginning of October. It was very enjoyable to go back to the Duke of Cornwall Hotel. Returning to the hotel brought back many happy memories. I had my annual dinner there when I was the PLS President. Long before that, in the early 1970’s, I used to play in the building as a boy. One of my friends' father was the general manager. We would run up and down t...

President's Review - Stephen Mahoney

Posted by on 8th January 2019 in January 2019 |
My previous report for the November Newsletter was written just before the CILEx Devon branch Autumn Ball and the DASLS Somerset dinner.  Both were most enjoyable.  It was a pleasure to attend the ball hosted by Devon Branch Chair Gemma Rowe and to meet, amongst other guests, CILEx National President Philip Sherwood, DVP Craig Tickner and immediate past National President Millicent Grant.   Every aspect of the Somerset dinner held on 2nd November went as well as I was hoping it would.  Over 100 member and guests attended and everyone I spoke to appeared to be having a good time.  Denis Burn was great company and gave an entertaining insight into his role...
