Gina Samuel-Richards inaugurated as President of Leicestershire Law Society

We’re delighted to announce that AGR Law solicitor-director Gina Samuel-Richards has been inaugurated as President of Leicestershire Law Society (LLS).

LLS has over 700 members and associate members working in the legal profession in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Membership benefits include attending networking events to foster connections with the local legal and business community, CPD seminars and courses to enhance knowledge and the opportunity to enter the Society’s prestigious Annual Awards.

Gina, who becomes the Society’s first Black President in its 162-year history, said: “I’m honoured to be President of LLS, and I intend to use my position to encourage youths living in Leicestershire to consider a career in law. Our region has a higher-than-average population of young people, and I hope to tap into this talent to benefit the legal profession and continue to build the legacy of the LLS.”

Gina is a long-term Leicester resident and is well-respected in the legal field. This role also acknowledges her contribution to the business, voluntary and education community over the past two decades. Gina has been a business owner since 2011 and co-founded AGR Law with Ruth Goward in 2016.

Speaking about Gina’s appointment, Ruth said: “I couldn’t be prouder of Gina for everything she has achieved and how generously she gives her time and expertise to help others. She is an excellent choice for President, and my team and I look forward to supporting her in this role as a friend and an esteemed colleague.”

Gina is part of a multi-heritage and multi-faith family, something she feels will help her connect further with Leicester’s multicultural business and legal community.

Gina has chosen three charities for LLS to support this year. They are:

  • Focus which supports 13 to 25-year-olds to develop the skills, confidence and aspirations to lead fulfilling lives and to make a positive contribution to their communities. Find out more HERE
