Not only was there a great mix of our members, but we were also given a chance to meet with celebrity hairdresser Adee Phelan with the launch of his new hair care brand Sknhead, alongside getting top city style tips from Selfridges Personal Shopper Aaron Archer.

For those who weren’t able to make it on the night, do keep your eyes open for similar events we shall be holding in the near future.

Regan Peggs, Director of the Birmingham Law Society thanked Everyman Barbers for their hospitality.

“It was always good for us to use new and exclusive venues for our networking events, to get together out of the office to network and then to also meet new faces. We shall definitely be doing this again soon and thank you to everyone for coming along,” he said.

Brett Tonks, General Manager of Everyman Barbers added: “It was just a fantastic night and we were so proud to play host to the Birmingham Law Society for the first time. It was great to meet so many of Birmingham’s best legal brains and show them our barber shop - and we want to thank everyone who came along on the evening.”

Visitors were also given the Everyman Barbers Corporate Card which offers Birmingham Law Society Members a 20% discount on all barbering treatments and products. Fear you have missed out?

The Birmingham Law Society is vehemently opposed to the SRA's proposals for changes to professional indemnity insurance

Included in its robust response: "To contend that premiums will be reduced as a result of the changes and that clients will benefit from costs savings is fanciful" and that "The SRA is yet again seeking to sacrifice client protections upon its own altar of change"

The response is published in full on the Birmingham Law Society website.

RVS 2011 Rory Bremner 0581

Rory Bremner, one of Britain’s best satirical impressionists, has been confirmed as the special guest speaker at Birmingham Law Society’s Bicentenary Gala Dinner, to be held later this year.

The award-winning comedian, writer and actor is best-known for his political satire and lifelike impersonations of Prime Ministers, Presidents and other world leaders.

During his 30-year TV career, Bremner has won numerous awards, including three BAFTAs for his Channel 4 series ‘Bremner, Bird and Fortune’. He has also written and starred in various political satire specials covering General Elections, the Iraq War, the Scottish Referendum and the coalition government, and is a regular guest on comedy quiz and panel shows.

His writing credits include columns for the Financial Times, New Statesman, and Daily Telegraph.

James Turner, president of Birmingham Law Society, said: “The 200th anniversary dinner will be a fantastic way to celebrate not only the Society’s history and legacy but also its future as it continues to shape and lead what is a changing and dynamic legal sector, both in Birmingham and the West Midlands.”

Established in 1818 with 19 founder members, BLS is now the largest regional law society in the UK, with more than 4,000 members drawn from law firms and barristers’ chambers across the West Midlands.

To mark the historic milestone, a year-long programme of Bicentenary themed events has been organised by the Society.

A book has also been commissioned to chronicle BLS’s history, and to chart the rise of the profession and the influence lawyers have had on the professional, business and civic life of the city and the region.

The Bicentenary Gala Dinner will be held on the 4th October at the International Convention Centre.
