New challenge for Law Society trio

By Wesleyan

Three legal experts are set to take on presidential roles at the Law Society.

Following the society's 2015 presidential elections, it has revealed that from July Jonathan Smithers, Robert Bourns and Joe Egan will be its president, vice-president and deputy vice-president respectively.

The three men will look to guide the legal profession through challenges caused by cuts to funding, new rules and regulations, and the introduction of new technology.

Mr Egan is a solicitor advocate and he will bring plenty of criminal law expertise to the role, thanks to his work at the legal practice he runs via two Bolton branches.

The Law Society is to hold talks with solicitors to improve the way it supports them.

Mr Egan says the views of Law Society members are vital in helping to decide what its focus should be, and they will allow the society to identify a "clear purpose".
