David Barraclough joins Law Society council

Immediate past president of the Yorkshire Union of Law Societies, David Barraclough, has been elected as a national Law Society council member representing the region.

Barraclough, who last week completed his three-year term as president of the Yorkshire Union of Law Societies, was elected to the governing council of the Law Society of England and Wales following a nomination process conducted between the local law societies in Yorkshire.

He replaces Chris Cole, who retired at the Law Society AGM, and joins Peter Wright and Mark Newby, the two other Law Society council members representing Yorkshire.

Commenting on his election, Barraclough said that he is delighted to be continuing to support solicitors throughout Yorkshire in a period of rapid change for the legal profession.

Barraclough practised as a commercial property solicitor in Leeds for more than 40 years, is a director and past president of Leeds Law Society, and sits on the Council Membership Committee of the Law Society.

He is also the Under Sheriff of West Yorkshire, the chair of the Yorkshire Legal Support Trust and a trustee of the Yorkshire Regiment.
