Jack named President of Preston Law Society


One of the North West legal sector’s rising stars has been named president of Preston Incorporated Law Society.

Jack Stephenson, associate solicitor at Harrison Drury , was elected to the role at Preston Law Society’s recent AGM.

Preston Incorporated Law Society can trace its history back to 1834 and represents the interests of those working in the legal profession in Preston and surrounding areas.

Its recent focus has been on forging links with the University of Central Lancashire’s law school to support more young people into a career in law.

In addition to its activities and events, including the annual Preston Law Society Ball, Preston Law Society also looks to support local charities including the North West Legal Support Trust, which aims to improve access to justice for the most vulnerable in society.

Jack, who is based in our Lancaster office and specialises in corporate and commercial law, said: “This is an enormous privilege. For the better part of two centuries the society has represented the interests of Preston’s lawyers and law firms at a national level.

“We’re one of the oldest law societies in the UK, and thanks to the renewed support and commitment of local law firms and UCLan, the society has been completely reinvigorated.

“We now place a lot of our attention on supporting young people to enter the profession and giving them the opportunity to network and gain experience with Lancashire law firms. This will continue to be a key part of our activity over the next 12-months.”

As well as his appointment as president of Preston Law Society, Jack was recently named as a finalist in the Lancashire Sub36 Awards which recognise the most influential and inspiring business people under 36.
