Christina Blacklaws, Chief Operating Officer of top 100 law firm Cripps, has officially taken office as Deputy Vice President of the Law Society and will become its President in two years time.

The Law Society represents the interests of the public together with 165,000 solicitors in England and Wales, and Christina’s appointment is the result of an election by the Law Society Council.

Christina will be Deputy Vice President for a year before progressing to Vice President in 2017 and finally President in 2018.

“I am honoured, delighted and humbled to have been elected,” she said. “These are challenging times and I look forward to engaging with the Law Society’s diverse membership and working to ensure the organisation is a relevant and effective representative body in a changing professional landscape.”

Christina has been a member of the Law Society’s Council for a number of years and has an impressive record of high profile representative roles including a current role as an executive member of the Family Justice Council. Prior to joining Cripps in 2014 she successfully ran and managed an innovative part virtual, part high street law firm and was recently Director of Policy at the Co-operative Legal Services.

At Cripps, Christina plays a vital role within the firm, helping it to develop innovative and efficient ways to respond to changes in a fast moving and highly competitive market and ensure clients receive the best possible service. She will continue in this role throughout her time as an office holder.
