Rinder keynote session

Legal Aid is in Crisis – We Must Act
Robert Rinder - Barrister, Writer, Broadcaster

Criminal barrister and TV host Robert Rinder joined us to discuss what we, the legal community, can do about legal aid's current state of crisis.

Law is meaningless unless everybody in our community has access to it. Since LAPSO in 2012, legal aid services are on the brink of collapse due to successive cuts and the impact of Covid-19.

A growing number of defendants have no lawyer or access to any legal advice when facing criminal charges, which drives more hearings and can end up costing more. Of course, unrepresented defendants often don’t understand some legal concepts, such as the difference an early guilty plea makes in sentencing.  

There are also severe problems are among criminal specialists. Is there a future for young lawyers going into the profession as legal aid-funded criminal solicitors?

The Presidential Plan: diversity and inclusion in the legal profession and its impact?
I. Stephanie Boyce, President - The Law Society of England and Wales

I. Stephanie Boyce 300 x 300In this Keynote session, Stephanie explored the role the Law Society can play in the modernisation of the legal profession and discussed the successful impact a diversified workforce can have on a firm. From diversity of thought and innovation to attracting top talent, gaining new clients and increasing economic growth, diversity is a necessity and ensures the law remains open and accessible for all.
