Changes on Journal Online

19 May 2010

Visitors to Journal Online will notice a slight change to the website from today.

The popular "Referendum" page, introduced ahead of the Society's first referendum last month and now carrying members' contributions relevant to the current poll on the Society's role, has been renamed "Forum", to provide an outlet for ongoing debate and discussion once the current referendum and next week's AGM are concluded. Click here to view.

Selecting this option on the home page gives you the choice of "Referendum", which contains all the articles so far posted on the two polls that have taken place, and "Alternative Business Structures (ABS)", which will carry contributions relevant to the debate at the AGM and then provide a forum for discussion as the Legal Services Bill continues through the Parliament – and how it will affect the profession in the light of the AGM vote.

Once the representation/regulation poll is concluded, the Referendum section will become an open forum for users to post comments and opinions on any law-related topic.

As always the Journal will encourage reasoned debate reflecting all shades of opinion within the profession, and welcomes comments, which can be emailed to the editor at or added as posts to articles already on the site. Comments are checked before being put live.
