Local Solicitor Receives Award For International Work
A former President of the Law Society of Northern Ireland has been recognised for his promotion of Northern Ireland’s legal profession to international business audiences with an 'Ambassador of the Year' Award.
Norville Connolly, a solicitor with Fisher Mullan Solicitors in Newry, received his award at the Visit Belfast Ambassador Awards held at the Ulster Museum in Belfast.
“We are delighted that Norville has been recognised for his ongoing work and commitment in showcasing Northern Ireland and its legal profession to international audiences.”
This conference is widely considered an important event in the international law calendar and will attract up to 500 delegates for four days and will be an estimated £800k boost to the local economy. Commenting the President of the Law Society of Northern Ireland, Arleen Elliott said:
Norville who is the Law Society’s International Bar Association representative has been instrumental in promoting the legal profession and in securing events such as the International Bar Leaders Conference & midyear meeting to be held in Belfast May 2017.
