The Birmingham Law Society Council nominations are now open and the deadline is Friday 29th July 2022.
The Annual General Meeting of the Society will be held on Wednesday 28th September 2022 at 5.00pm at No5 Barristers’ Chambers, Fountain Court, 5 Steelhouse Lane, B4 6DR and you are warmly invited to attend. A formal notice will be sent out nearer to the time.
We have always encouraged Birmingham’s legal practices to ensure they are represented on Council to help shape the ongoing work of the Society. From September, there will be vacancies on Council and we invite you to put forward a representative from your organisation who you know would be interested in actively contributing to the work of the Society. The initial term is four years and re-election is possible thereafter. We are a representative organisation and therefore aim for our Council to be representative of our membership and our legal community. We welcome nominations from both newer entrants into the profession and more senior colleagues. Members of all backgrounds, levels of experience, practice type and protected characteristics are encouraged to apply.
Birmingham Law Society is a progressive organisation that seeks to promote Birmingham and the West Midlands as a centre of legal excellence. We wish to attract members who are prepared to attend Council meetings on a regular basis (there are normally 10 monthly meetings annually) and contribute strategically to the development of the Society. Council members are encouraged to sit on one of the many committees which are integral to the success of the Society and to contribute to drafting responses to key consultation papers affecting our profession.
A form of nomination is enclosed, which needs to be returned by Friday 29th July 2022 having been duly proposed and seconded by (fully paid up) members of the Society.
