The last few days have seen numerous discussions across social media and email forums in relation to contract requirements and the representation of the profession. Many have expressed strong views, some of which have been ill-informed. The only way to establish the facts and influence the future is by joining and becoming part of it. The CLSA committee work extremely hard to ensure that members are well represented. Membership costs are low and value for money is good.
The profession has, for a long time, recognised the need for unity. This is something the Bar have achieved successfully in the past, which has been very much to their benefit. It is time that the solicitors profession worked on achieving the same. If you want to have a say in the future of your profession then there is no better place to start than with the CLSA.
The conference itself promises to be well worth attending with a myriad of knowledgeable speakers including Professor Ed Cape, Nazir Afzal OBE, Andrew Keogh and others. There will also be a question and answer session enabling attendees to raise topics for discussion.
