Local Government Legal Society Trust
The forerunner to the Trust was the Local Government Legal Society which was founded in 1947 to promote the interests of solicitors and trainee solicitors in local government.
In addition to the periodic meetings, which took place in its various branches, the Society arranged an annual Weekend School, the first of which was at Easthampstead Park Training College in 1959. Since then, the Weekend School has become a regular feature of the training programme for local government solicitors.
In 1977 the Society was wound up for the foundation of the Local Government Group. Its assets were transferred to a newly established Trust - The Local Government Legal Society Trust Fund.
The objectives of the Trust were, and still are:
"To promote and develop the role of solicitors employed in Local Government in legal, managerial and administrative capacities and take appropriate action on all matters concerning their training, duties responsibilities, status, remuneration and interests".
The Trust also took over responsibility for running the Weekend School and has underwritten its operation since 1977.
The relationship and co-operation between the Trust and SLG is close. The Trust's Annual Meeting is held after SLG's AGM at the Weekend School.
The Trust has also funded or contributed to a variety of initiatives including publications; individual research; preparatory work for the Diploma in Local Government Law and Practice; seminars to enable the Group to review its activities and plan for the future; study tours of foreign institutions, for example the visits to Brussels in November 1999 and 2003; the LGG Training initiative and a Law and Administration supplement to the Local Government Chronicle.
The Weekend School is now run by SLG in association with the Trust with the Trust providing financial support to ensure the financial viability of this prestigious annual event.
