You are invited to join Birmingham Law Society for an evening in celebration of our legal community hosted by our President, Alice Kinder. The President’s Dinner is a prestigious celebration which brings together leaders and influencers from Birmingham and beyond. The evening will commence with a drinks reception at 6.30pm, followed by a formal dinner and an opportunity for networking.

We are pleased to announce that our guest speaker on the night will be Jess Phillips MP.

Jess Phillips is a Labour Party politician who became MP for the constituency of Birmingham Yardley at the 2015 general election.

Jess has committed her life to improving the lives of others, especially the most vulnerable. Before becoming an MP, Jess worked for Women’s Aid in the West Midlands developing services for victims of domestic abuse, sexual violence, human trafficking and exploitation. She became a Councillor in 2012. In this role, she worked tirelessly to support residents with her work being recognised when she became Birmingham's first ever Victims Champion.

Since becoming an MP, Jess has continued her fight to support those who need it most and has earned a reputation for plain speaking. Since being elected, she has been unfazed by threats and continued to call out sexist attitudes as she promotes women’s rights. Until recently, Jess was Shadow Minister for Domestic Violence and Safeguarding.

Jess has written three bestselling books ‘Everywoman, One Woman’s Truth About Speaking The Truth’ and ‘Truth to Power: 7 Ways to Call Time on BS’, and My Life as an MP. All books reflect her commitment to speaking up and having the courage to have your voice heard in the hope of making a difference.

We will be raising money during the evening for our President's chosen charity, the Social Mobility Foundation.
