The NOTICED steering committee

This consists of 2-3 representatives from each member firm and a representative of The Law Society, and it meets approximately once every two months.

Committee functions

The main functions of the committee are:

  • To identify and administer initiatives which will help in achieving NOTICED’s objectives
  • To organise events to: (i) discuss issues faced by ethnic minority groups; (ii) share good practices in the legal profession; and (iii) celebrate diversity
  • To co-ordinate various diversity activities amongst member firms

Member firms

Individuals from member firms, who are part of the committee, are appointed to the following board positions through a simple selection process:

  • Co-Chairs
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Website Manager


The board positions are filled on a rotation basis, allowing each member firm an opportunity to appoint their representatives to the board.

In addition, the network has appointed an external adviser and a publicity manager, both of whom form part of the steering committee.
