Happy New Year from Aston Court including Winner from the Caption Competition

The latest round of The Law Society’s campaign for gender equality came to town in December with a Men’s Roundtable in Exeter chaired by the national Vice-President Simon Davis. The meeting challenged us to consider our behaviour identifying the unconscious bias that can be inherent in business practice. Start by asking yourself does every activity organised in your office genuinely appeal to all genders – entertaining clients at the Rugby and so forth - and you begin to see the issue.

 

The meeting proved to be far more informative and interesting than I had anticipated. 

At the recent DASLS Admissions Ceremony only one of the recently qualified solicitors was male. The national statistics show that 62% of recently admitted solicitors are women who now represent more than 50% of Practice Certificate holders. Change is here and those firms that will succeed in the future will embrace new ways of working that accommodate the greater diversity in their workforce.

 

Entries for the 2019 DASLS Legal awards has now closed with more nominations having been made than ever before.  The Judges meet in January and a shortlist will be published later in the month when tickets will also be on sale. Twitter followers will know that a menu tasting for the Awards event has taken place. It is shaping up to be a truly memorable experience.

 

The Social Sub-Committee have been busy and the final Challenge Cup event for the 2018/2019 year is the traditional quiz night on 29th January. It was not possible to run the 5-side-football this year. At the time of writing I have not started setting the questions so look out – plenty of time to come up with some tough rounds.

 

Best wishes to you all for 2019 which promises to be as interesting as the last two; Monique is looking forward to having settled status!
