Lauren Crow appointed President of Nottinghamshire Law Society

On Tuesday 14 May 2024, Lauren Crow was appointed as President of the Nottinghamshire Law Society, at the Annual General Meeting. Lauren is the 8th female President in Nottinghamshire Law Society’s 150-year history.

Lauren is passionate about equality, diversity and inclusion within the Nottinghamshire Law Society and the legal profession.   We have no doubt that Lauren will continue to work with the Society, the Equality and Diversity Committee and its members to pave the way and be an inspiration to others to follow.

Each year the President selects a charity for the Society to support; this year Lauren has chosen to support Harmless and the Tomorrow Project.  In relation to this charity, Lauren says:

‘A key part of Nottinghamshire Law Society’s contribution to the wider community is its charitable efforts which is why I am delighted to be supporting Harmless and the Tomorrow Project this year. 

Harmless was established in 2007 and provides direct support, information, training and consultancy to individuals who self-harm, their friends, families and professionals.  

Their sister service, the Tomorrow Project, offers crucial crisis intervention and bereavement support to those affected by suicide.

My decision to support Harmless and the Tomorrow Project is deeply personal.  I understand firsthand the profound impact these struggles have on individuals and their families, and I have experienced the scarcity of much-needed services, particularly by those that cannot afford finance access to help themselves. 

I really hope during my year as President we, through the generous donations and charitable efforts of the Nottinghamshire Law Society members, can make a meaningful contribution to their front-line, vital services.’

We are incredibly proud of Lauren’s appointment and have no doubt that she will be a brilliant President.  We look forward to seeing what the Society will achieve this year with Lauren at the helm.
