Synopsis

29 April 2021

Subject: Women leading the way: law and governance in the West Midlands legal market

 

Speakers: Inez Brown, President of the Birmingham Law Society and I. Stephanie Boyce, Vice President of the Law Society

The Presidents of the national and local chapters of the Law Society joined us for an evening to discuss their careers, the leading role of women in governance, and the West Midlands legal market as it weathers the pandemic and looks forwards.

We also provided a technical update to our members in respect of AGMs and the lapse of flexibilities under the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act and the extension of the Dormant Assets regime.

Our speakers brought a wealth of knowledge and experience and it was an informative evening enjoyed by all!
