BLS welcomes new President, Ben Holt

Ben Holt, Partner, Dispute Resolution, VWV

I am delighted and honoured to take over as President of Bristol Law Society. I look forward to representing my colleagues and the profession across our fantastic city and nationally, promoting community engagement, diversity and inclusion and of course celebrating the Society’s historic 250th anniversary with you.

In addition to our usual offering of training, networking and social events, over the past year, the Society has successfully co-ordinated a number of new local collaborations. We have helped launch the hugely popular Bristol & Bath Legal Tech initiative, bringing together our innovative lawyers and technology experts to consider our role in the future of legal tech. Another highlight was the Society’s involvement in the Feeding Bristol campaign, where 60% of volunteer time was from local lawyers. We are also looking to launch a Bristol showcasing event in 2020 to celebrate the sectors that our region is most well-known for and to highlight our legal expertise that compliment those areas.

We continue our close alliance with the other 4 major legal centres outside of London, representing a total of around 15,000 lawyers – which allows us to have a stronger voice on national issues when representing you in discussions with the national Law Society and the SRA.

As a not for profit society, we can only continue our work with the on-going support of our dedicated members, all of whom help make Bristol Law Society one of the largest, most active and forward-thinking local law societies in England and Wales.

Thank you for your continued support.
