Justice Minister opens The Meeting Space at Law Society House

A new state of the art meeting venue is now available in the heart of Belfast’s Legal Quarter.

The Meeting Space at Law Society House was officially opened by the Justice Minister, Naomi Long MLA, on Wednesday at an event attended by Northern Ireland’s new Lady Chief Justice.

The new venue is a major development by the Law Society in support of its Members.

The Meeting Space is a contemporary venue designed with communication at its heart and offering every user an exceptional experience.

Its facilities can be configured to accommodate meetings, mediations, seminars and negotiations. Formal meeting rooms are supported with break out areas. Each area is equipped with high specification audio visual facilities, wifi and internet access.

Commenting on the opening of The Meeting Space the President of the Law Society Rowan White said:

“As the Law Society approaches its Centenary next year, the new Meeting Space at Law Society House reflects our commitment to investing in the future by providing state of the art facilities to support the legal profession.

Speaking at the Justice Minster, Naomi Long, MLA said:

“I welcome the opening of these state of the art facilities and the additional capacity the space will provide for mediations which, in appropriate cases, can enhance access to justice and improve outcomes.

I have prioritised action on Alternative Dispute Resolution in plans being taken forward for the modernisation of the civil justice system, with the aim of making the system more accessible as well as fairer, more proportionate and more responsive.

I recognise enhancing the use of ADR can go a long way to achieving those objectives and I am delighted to see the continued steps being taken by the Law Society to further support its use.
