The Law Society – Volunteers wanted for local media panels


 

 

 

 

 

After the success of Legal Expert newspaper columns in South Wales, Bradford and Darlington/County Durham, we’re rolling out similar features in the York Press and Western Daily Press.

We’re setting up additional local media panels to help consumers understand the important work solicitors do to assist people in their everyday lives.

We’re looking for solicitors who want to share legal advice around issues such as divorce, child arrangements, domestic abuse, making a will, medical negligence and buying a house.

We’re also keen to offer guidance around issues such as forced marriage, female genital mutilation, stalking, and social media abuse, to name a few. Employment and business law are also on the agenda.

To be on one of our local media panels you need to have:

  • a minimum of four years’ post-qualification experience, and
  • a specialism in a relevant area of law (family, conveyancing, business, wills and probate, personal injury or criminal law)

If you’re a practising solicitor in one of those areas in Bristol or Bath and would like to get involved, email lawsociety@dtw.co.uk by Friday 23 August.
