In his key note address the President of the Law Society, Ian Huddleston took the occasion to offer some advice and guidance and reminded all of the words of John Davies, a former United States solicitor general who, said of solicitors;-

“true, we build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures. There is little of what we do which the eye… can see.

But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes, we take up other men and women's burdens and by our efforts we make possible [a] peaceful life.
