The newly inaugurated President of the Law Society has insisted his role is not just about being a figurehead.

Stuart Gilhooly, 45, who is from Malahide, North Dublin, said: "Honour is definitely one of the reasons but you do get an opportunity to shape policy.

"You're not purely shaking hands and kissing babies. There's more to it than that."

This weekend don't miss Gilhooly in conversation with our Legal Affairs Correspondent, Francesca Comyn, talking about about the challenges that lie ahead, including making sure the Law Society remains relevant right across the profession and why Brexit is a big issue for the sector.
