North East Conference Great Success

Publish date: 29/07/2016

The North East Conference held on 7th July was a great success and tribute to the high level of branch activity and networking in that region. Alongside a plethora of speakers from private practice and exhibitors, the event also acknowledged the longstanding and remarkable dedication of Dennis Hall (23 years!) who stepped down as North East Branch Secretary in June. As Chair of SLG, one of his most important legacies was establishing trainee solicitors on the board and which remains today in the form of the Junior Lawyers. A vital succession initiative saw the progression of junior lawyers through the organisation and great contributions spanning over a decade. As director of LLG Enterprises, Dennis has been pivotal in providing the first Masters Degree programme tailored for local government lawyers which is anticipated to roll out next year. His vision and drive has been inspirational to many. LLG wish Dennis a happy and invigorating retirement whatever pursuits await. You will be sorely missed. Click for photos
