Law society to become voluntary
Congrats to The Law Society, who are on the verge of becoming a voluntary organisation. David Farrar has written a very good post on the topic and how it relates to VSM. Have a read as he outlines the similarities more articulately than I could.
I have heard many times the argument "the Law Society is compulsory so why can't Student Associations stay that way too?" Now they can no longer use that, a far better question would be "why does every other sector in society have voluntary membership EXCEPT for students?"
