Neil Major stands down after 25 years

Neil Major joined the committee in 1986 and served for six years before being made Honorary Secretary in 1992. He has continued in this role for 25 years, bringing his grand total of time with the PLS committee to an impressive 31 years.

Neil was elected President in 1993 and made President of the Association of South Western Law Societies in both 1994 and 2002.

Talking about his time with PLS, Neil said: "It has been a real pleasure to have served all the various Presidents of PLS who have come from different sized firms and with different legal specialities, and have therefore contributed something different and individual to that role. I have also enjoyed over the years meeting Presidents and Honorary Secretaries of other local law societies, particularly those within the Association of South Western Law Societies.

"PLS has had to adapt to the changing needs of the members of PLS, and the changing make up and nature of the profession, so as to continue to be relevant to its members. Although this has been challenging at times, I believe that PLS has successfully achieved this."

We all at Plymouth Law Society wholeheartedly thank Neil for the time and support he has given to us as Honorary Secretary and look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.
