Regional admissions ceremony open for all solicitors

Solicitors who wish to celebrate their hard work can now attend the Law Society of England and Wales’ regional admissions ceremony taking place in Leeds this September.

Hosted in partnership with the Leeds Law Society, Leeds Civic Hall will be the venue on Monday 11 September. This admissions ceremony is open to solicitors who have not yet had the chance to mark their success with friends and family, regardless of whether they qualified recently or many years ago.

Our president Lubna Shuja said: “We are delighted to be introducing regional admissions ceremonies for our members. We hope the event in Leeds will be a step towards ensuring all lawyers, no matter where they are based, can attend, and celebrate their achievements.

“This has long been a Law Society goal, as well as being part of my presidential priorities to support members and address the barriers to entering the profession. It has been great to work alongside James Joseph and Emma Lilley, who have tirelessly campaigned for “Mission Admission” to realise this goal.

“Not all qualified solicitors can make it to the London ceremony. We want everyone to have the chance to be cheered on by their peers and loved ones in recognition of their accomplishments. We hope that holding regional ceremonies will help achieve this.

“I’m excited to be at the Leeds ceremony and look forward to celebrating with attendees on the day.”

Booking for the ceremony closes on 6 September 2023.
