Our director Carrie Laws has been elected as President of the Plymouth Law Society for 2024 alongside Jenny Phillips as Vice President. Carrie is the 10th female president since the Society was founded in 1815.
Carrie who is a director in our care team, succeeds Rebecca Wood from Woollcombe Yonge.
Plymouth Law Society currently has over 30 members and associate organisations from Plymouth and travel to work areas, from high street to international firms together with associate members and sponsors Conveyancing Data Services, KE Costs, Fuel Communications and Marsh UK. The membership collaborates to encourage local people into all areas of the profession, support charitable initiatives, share best practice, promote continuous professional development and feed into The Law Society at a national level.
Carrie brings not only her passion for access to justice and legal aid to the role but also her unwavering dedication to equality and inclusion.
Carrie commented “ I have had the privilege to support Rebecca last year as we made history in becoming the first ever all female lead team and I look forward to stepping into the role of president. We have an incredibly diverse legal sector in our city and I am excited to help raise awareness of all that our members do. From supporting the most vulnerable to corporate investment in our economy, they all play a part in helping our city thrive.”
Carrie’s chosen charities this year are Young Devon, Trevi and Promoting Children in Plymouth
