From the Leo Cussen Centre for Law Board

We are delighted to announce that following an extensive and robust recruitment process the Board has selected and appointed Shirley Southgate as Leo Cussen’s new Executive Director effective from 1 October 2019.  

Shirley’s appointment is an indication of the confidence that the Board has in the current management team and the Board’s commitment to the culture and values of the organisation. The Board expects Leo Cussen to continue to change and grow under Shirley’s leadership. Leo Cussen is pre-eminent in the PLT and CPD fields, and will endeavour to grow the business to guarantee our long term success.  The Board is confident that it has identified a leader who, with the staff’s continued efforts and support, will ensure that we achieve this objective.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Elizabeth Loftus, the outgoing Executive Director, for the fantastic work she has done over the years to get Leo Cussen to where it is today leaving an outstanding foundation for the organisation to build on, and we wish Elizabeth all the very best for the future.
