Worcestershire Law Society (‘WLS’)

WLS was established in 1841 to unite, promote and support local lawyers and the Worcestershire Community. The Society has approaching 400 members

including Partners, Solicitors, Paralegals and Trainees. WLS extended its membership to Barristers and Legal Executives who regularly attend and support our annual events. The Society supports the legal profession within the area by providing excellent CPD training courses and representing members’ interests. WLS also offers a number of social events throughout the year giving members an opportunity to meet with other solicitors within the County.

The Event…

This has become a well established and prestigious event in the annual legal calendar. The Society will be holding its 2018 celebration of legal excellence in the County on 27th April 2018 at Worcester Guildhall, Worcester.


It is anticipated that the forthcoming Legal Awards evening will be the biggest so far, with over 160 guests attending. Attendees are predominately Solicitor

Partner/Directors and their shortlisted employees from various firms across the

County. The event is also attended by Barristers from local Chambers and a small number of solicitors representing the WLS “Junior Lawyers” Division.

The Guest Speaker … David Osbourne

David is an accomplished public speaker with considerable experience in this highly competitive field. He is greatly in demand as an after dinner speaker, where he recalls many humorous experiences of life at the Bar. His humour and wit will bring the evening to light, and leave the guests wanting more. David is also the accomplished author of a number of hilarious legal novels which he will be happy to sign for guests on the night.

The MC… Hursty

Hursty has been the voice of breakfast radio across Worcestershire for over 9 years. On Free Radio you can hear him every weekday. You’ll find his voice popping up in other places too – on pitch at West Bromwich Albion during the football season – and at New Road for Worcestershire County Cricket Club for their T20 matches. You might have watched him win Strictly Worcestershire in 2015. Nowadays you’ll find trainers rather than dancing shoes on his feet as he regularly loves a jog around the city centre…when he’s not taking some of the lovely food and drink the
