On Thursday 19 April, the first ever family law tweet-up took place at One Alfred Place, a private members club in the heart of London’s West End, attracting over 60 family law tweeters from all over the UK.

The purpose was to bring together Twitter users to meet in the flesh and to discuss family law issues using more than 140 characters allowed by Twitter. It was organised by leading north-east family law specialists, Major Family Law (@majorfamilylaw) and sponsored by LexisNexis (@LexisNexisUK), a leading provider of legal information and practical guidance.

Geraldine Morris, Head of LexisPSL Family at LexisNexis (@geraldinemorris), said: “LexisNexis publishes an extensive range of family law online and print content, making sponsorship of the first family law tweet-up a natural partnership. The event was a great opportunity to share ideas and knowledge and I’m delighted that it was a huge success.”

An early adopter and advocate of social media in customer engagement in the north-east, Major Family Law were keen to promote networking and collaboration between family law practitioners.

Founder and principal solicitor Joanne Major said: “At Major Family Law, we aim to be as innovative and modern as possible in our approach. Twitter is an increasingly rich source of important family law news, an opportunity to learn, and a great way to get input into thorny legal issues. We are very pleased with the success of this flagship event, and look forward to seeing more take place.”

Following the tweet-up, Twitter was buzzing with attendees asking when the next event would be – follow the hashtag #familylawtweetup for the latest updates as there could be a tweet-up happening near you soon!

How to make a case to the unconverted

Jonathan Whittle

The prospect of change is a daunting one, whether you’re a global firm or a small one. You might think that your firm’s working practices are fine, or that there’s no value in altering the way you do things because of the disruption it would cause. You might even see the benefits of using a different methodology, but still refuse to put the effort in to implement it – and you wouldn’t be alone. From our research in the 2016 report, The Riddle of Perception, we know that 73% of lawyers believe that adapting to change is not where their strength lies. However, it’s no longer optional.
