Aston Court News including Environmental Sustainability

Congratulations to Arnold Harding who elevated me to ‘Master of the Rolls’ in the last edition’s caption competition. It is of course a tissue of lies. Arnold was not the only entrant to suggest this caption and so a prize draw was initiated for the fizz. There were several good entries including one from our Honorary Secretary; “No, no Tony, I said we need 144 chocolate rolls, not toilet rolls …….”.  We look forward to your entries from this month’s photo of the Dean of Exeter Cathedral; I gather he is keen to see the suggestions!

 

So, what’s happening at DASLS I hear you ask – well even if you didn’t I shall tell you anyway.

 

Our Environmental Sustainability working group have met recently and following their survey of firms have produced an infographic illustrating the results (shown below).  It appears there is an ambition in the profession to do more to reduce our impact on the environment, but it is proving more difficult to translate this into action. We will help you; if you have someone in your organisation that is keen to drive this then please make sure we are in touch with them.

 

Planning for our autumn Conferences is underway.  Last year’s Family Law Conference was addressed by Sir Nicholas Mostyn and his speech to us about Spousal Maintenance was reported in Family Law Week - https://www.familylawweek.co.uk/site.aspx?i=ed199496. Our Practice Management Conference will be on Wednesday 20 November; we already have some exciting speakers for this year’s event.  Speakers for our In-House Lawyers’ Conference are being lined up to cover a diverse range of topics from the new SRA Handbook to Crisis Management.

 

We will shortly start work on the 2020 Legal Awards and it will be a challenge to exceed the spectacle of 2019. However, we will be working hard to deliver another stunning programme that showcases the excellent legal services that are offered in our two counties.

 

The Joint Professions’ Networking Group also met recently and had a debate around the practical implications of Brexit. The purpose of the event was to discuss how organisations in our region are responding to this challenge. I am proud to report that the whole event was good natured and constructive demonstrating the goodwill and resilience within the professional sector.

 

Finally may I remind you that our extensive programme of training continues as well as our recruitment services. Please use us when you can.
