Legalex: Promoting Verbatim Reporting to the legal world

By Leah Willersdorf on

On the 22nd and 23rd of March BIVR attended the Legalex conference, presenting for the two days at our stand. It was a busy – and fun – couple of days.

Some thanks

I would like to say a big thanks to Carryl Sorene for her marvellous efforts in producing the panelled banners for our stand. This took a lot of of work on Carryl’s part, but we finally got there! This won’t be the only use of the banners – we’ll have them for other events. Also, big thank-yous to Council Members Nicole Harrison, for her demoing for most of the second day, and to Ann Lloyd for coming along also on the second day to (wo)man the stand.

It’s a shame we had no pen writers volunteer to come along and demonstrate the art of pen shorthand; but there’s always next time!! Finally, as always, a huge and massive thank-you to Mary for everything she did for the event, and for everything she continues to do for us as a profession and as an Institute.

I’ve included some photos here in a gallery, so you can see how it looked. Suffice to say, we had a great time and it was a successful exercise in awareness raising.

The event in pictures

Here are some fantastic pictures from the event!

Legalex was a fun event and we were successful in raising awareness – of not just the Institute but of our profession. With the advent of digitisation, a number of people thought the stenographer doesn’t exist anymore, as you can see in the gallery. I reckon it’s pretty safe to say that we wowed them and we showed them!
