LLG President Attends the Local Authorities Solicitors Bar Association in IrelandPublish date: 02/12/2018
LLG has, over many years, retained strong links with both Ireland's and Scotland's membership bodies for lawyers working in local government. These are important relationships to retain and promote and LLG's President, Suki Binjal, was delighted to attend Ireland's Local Authorities Solicitors Bar Association (LASBA) annual conference in Dublin.
The programme for the LASBA conference was broad and informative mirroring and raising many of the issues we face within our own jurisdiction and containing elements of governance and resilience. It was a wonderful opportunity to come together and disseminate good working practices and practical innovation. LLG wishes to extend our thanks to LASBA for a wonderful conference.
