I’m delighted to have been nominated as a candidate in the forthcoming Law Society Council Elections. I would appreciate your support and ask you to consider me when casting your ballot before polling ends at 5.00pm on Thursday 27th October.
Why I am Seeking Election
I believe that smaller practices, both inside and outside of Dublin, need greater representation within the Law Society. I believe in diversity. I believe it’s important that members of differing views, from different backgrounds and with different personal experience come together to contribute to shaping the future of the Law Society, so it will always be a profession we are proud to be part of.
