Cornwall Law Society was established in 1883. The Society supports 300 members in the County of Cornwall by providing guidance, CPD Training, marketing, recruitment and social events. The Society is the county’s independent local Law Society and voice for local Solicitors and members of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives.
This website is not only a resource for members of the Cornwall Law Society, but is also open to members of the public to locate local legal advice.
President of Cornwall Law Society 2021-2022
I am very honoured to be President of the Cornwall Law Society for the second time, having previously been President in 2015/16.
Despite having the difficulties of Covid, at present, which prevents the committee from meeting in person, we have exciting developments in the Cornwall Law Society which have been built on over the last few years and which I want to ensure progresses through my Presidency and shows Cornwall Law Society as a forward thinking and innovative local law society.
We are working hard to progress and finalise the new Cornwall Law Society website. As anyone knows who has been involved in the creation of a new website, it is a thorough, and sometimes frustrating procedure, but we have to get it right and we are working with an award-winning company in creating the website that will not only provide great information and facilities for its members but also attract sponsorship.
We are also continuing to develop the Society’s relationship with Truro and Penwith College and the Cornwall campuses of Exeter University. We have an increasing number of students as members of the Cornwall Law Society and are excited about the future possibilities of Truro and Penwith College being able to provide both solicitor and paralegal apprenticeships.
I will be doing all I can to carry on the excellent work done by previous Presidents in these two fields. It would be wonderful to be able to get back to face-to-face courses and have our Annual Dinner and, subject to the covid restrictions which I am sure will increase in the short term, I would love to achieve these during my Presidency.
I continue to represent the south-west on the Small Firms committee at Chancery Lane and if anyone has anything they wish me to raise at national level then please contact me by email.
Regards to All
