Legal EyeLegal Eye hosted their first seminar in the Library of Birmingham on 1 March 2017 and were overwhelmed with the response.

Keynote speeches delivered by the SRA, Paycasso, and Managing Director of Legal Eye Paul Saunders covering a wide range of risks, from exiting the EU to cybercrime, investment fraud and biometrics.

Andrea Fairweather, Solicitor at Birchall Blackburn Solicitors said “I found the seminar very interesting and definitely took away some useful information. I thought it included a good variety of interesting topics, and covered some of the current issues that we are facing, both as conveyancers and as legal firms generally.”

Paul Saunders commented “The seminars we are hosting are designed to be informative and educational rather than designed to frighten, so I am pleased to hear that we achieved that balance. We had an excellent and diverse set of industry experts presenting to our audience and I have been pleasantly surprised with how many firms are embracing the changes they know they need to make.”

Legal Eye has added a webinar on the SRA Risk Outlook; Spring Update in April, to its forthcoming event list, and will also be hosting a conference in June.

If firms would like a copy of the presentation slides from the keynote speakers and round table hosts Lawyer Checker, Financial Eye and the Law Society please contact Rhonda Treacy-Hales at rh@legal-eye.co.uk

Make your mark: Personal branding for barristers

stand out from the crowd

A recent Legal Futures article reported that the number complaints involving use of social media by barristers is increasing. The BSB have warned that “as social media and the internet become more prominent in our daily lives, there is an increasing need for barristers to be very careful about what they post whether in their professional or personal lives”. While inappropriate use of social media isn’t anything new, what struck me when reading that paragraph is that, for barristers, I would argue, there shouldn’t be a defining line between the personal and professional. As a barrister, you are your own USP, your personal brand is everything.
