Happy New Year from DASLS Office

Happy New Year

 

It is the morning after! No not that sort of morning after – as I write it’s the morning after the deadline for nominations to be made for the DASLS Legal Awards and we are delighted to announce that we have had significantly more entries than in previous years.  Thank you to everyone who has entered; we look forward to seeing you at Exeter Cathedral on 30th April when the winners will be announced. No doubt there will be another morning after that! Tickets will go on sale once the shortlist has been announced towards the end of January.

 

Our new recruitment advertising service has started well with good support and our work behind the scenes has seen increased levels of activity on our website. The advertising package includes a job posting on the Law Society Gazette Online Job Board ensuring a national presence at a very cost-effective price. The DASLS Job Board is now the place to go to look at vacancies available across our two counties and all the latest positions are advertised on the back of this Newsletter. Go to DASLS website for more details.

 

Looking forward we will be working to improve and refine our provision of training events. The DASLS programme has always been responsive to members’ requests and we would be very pleased to hear about seminars that you would like to see included speakers that we might wish to invite. Look out for new Annual Conferences and masterclass sessions.

 

The County Societies Group will be meeting in February when we will be the guests of the SRA at The Cube. I am sure there will be some interesting discussions about their direction of travel and current operations to report back.

 

Can it really be 20 years since the Millennium? The economic and political landscape has changed greatly in that time and new challenges and opportunities in the provision of legal services have emerged. I hope that DASLS has evolved and adapted to continue to be relevant and fit for purpose in that time. Each year different issues come to the fore; in 2019 The Law Society highlighted the many issues around Legal Aid and the advice deserts across our region and the SRA introduced a new Handbook. DASLS was pleased to co-host an event addressed by Richard Miller from The Law Society for Criminal Defence practitioners and we have offered training events with experts on the SRA changes.

 

New year is a time for looking forward and as we enter the post-Brexit era we continue to review and look to improve. It would be brilliant to get some ongoing feedback; What does DASLS mean to you? Are there things that we can do better or are there services that we might introduce to add value to your DASLS membership?  If you can find five minutes to respond then send me an email - tony@dasls.com.

 

Happy New Year from us all at Aston Court. 

 

Tony Steiner

DASLS Executive Director
