PENNY Scott, partner at Cartridges Law, has been appointed as Chair of The Law Society’s Family Law Committee.
Penny, who has served on the committee for five years, took up the position this month. The committee is made up of specialist family law solicitors from throughout England and Wales who advise The Law Society on family law policy and development.
She said: ‘It really is a great honour to chair this committee. As well as generally reviewing and ensuring high standards of practice in family law we undertake specific projects – such as examining how how family law should look post Brexit, or the development of on-line courts. The role also involves helping to represent the views of family lawyers nationally to policymakers and government.’
