A Milestone for me at DASLS

2nd October 2019 marked my 30-year work anniversary! I thought I would take this opportunity, as I’m often asked, to explain what I do. My partner is under the impression that I just open the odd letter between meetings and posh meals out!

 

My role is mostly admin, hence my title. I look after DASLS Officers, service the main Committee and a number of Sub-Committees (Executive, Vice President, Contentious Business, International Relations and Non-Contentious Business) as well as the Legal Awards Working Group since 2014. I also maintain the membership database and process the annual membership renewal, organise a number of social functions, deal with the AGM reports, Newsletters and more. There is a full job description that I can email if any member is interested.

 

2020 promises to be an exciting year. Firstly, the Legal Awards Ceremony & Dinner returning to Exeter Cathedral on 30 April.

 

Then on 4-7 June DASLS will be hosting the Twin/International Bars meeting culminating with the Legal Sunday Service on 7 June – mark these dates in your diary.

 

I have had the fortune to have been involved in this valuable aspect of DASLS work since 1990 and assisted the various working groups preparing all the meetings hosted by the Society in 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and with Gdańsk, Verona and Bilbao joining the initial twinned core group of the bars of Erlangen, Leuven and Rennes, the rotation became 2013 and 2020. Cross border issues have been and will continue to impact on lawyers’ work. I receive requests for international contacts regularly and DASLS current network is a valuable tool. We are currently updating DASLS International Business Database to market DASLS members with not only our Twin Bars but more widely throughout Europe. If any members would like to be included, email me with contact details (bear in mind all will be public on DASLS website) with area(s) of practice and language(s) spoken.

 

The job created back in 1989 was tailor-made for me and I have learnt a great deal - congratulations to ‘moi’ and here is to many more successful years for DASLS!
