Members of the Law Society who work in central government are being urged to vote in a re-run election for their representative to join the Law Society Council.
Chancery Lane has revealed that following this year’s Council elections, it became aware of a data error in which a portion of the electorate for the central government seat were not supplied with a ballot. Consequently, the election for this seat needed to be rerun.
“This was an isolated error, and no other seats are impacted,” the Law Society said.
Details on how to vote can be found here.
The Law Society said: “Our Council agrees the strategic direction of our work and collectively represents the views of all solicitors in England and Wales. To find out more about how we're governed, please visit our governance pages.
“If you're a solicitor working in central government, this is an opportunity to help decide who should represent you and your views on the issues that matter to you most.”
