In recognition of the fact that many solicitors didn’t take part in an admissions ceremony when newly qualified, the Law Society has developed a special ceremony for solicitors added to the role prior to 2009. The event will take place at the Law Society, Chancery Lane in London on July 12 between 3pm and 5pm.
Lucy Scott-Moncrieff, President of the Law Society of England and Wales said: “Many newly qualified solicitors, and their families, tell us how much they enjoy their admissions ceremony – a chance to mark the start of a new stage in their lives and celebrate a lot of hard work. However there are many solicitors who never went through this rite of passage, and some tell us they regret this, so we have developed an admissions ceremony for solicitors added to the roll prior to 2009.”
The cost is £65 (inclusive of VAT) which covers gown hire, two guest passes and a drinks reception after the ceremony. Those taking part will enjoy a unique admissions ceremony “tailored to solicitors who missed their chance when newly qualified, and would now like to celebrate their success in qualifying and in practice, with their friends and family”.
Solicitors taking part will be presented to the Law Society’s president or senior office holder. There will then be a special drinks reception for the solicitors and their guests. Booking early is recommended as this is expected to be a popular event and tickets will only be available strictly on a first come, first served basis.
