Hey Legal: Creating Community in a Time of Crisis

Hey Legal was featured in the January 2021 edition of the Journal of the Law Society of Scotland The article describes how with the help of our community, we have created a place for Scottish lawyers to come together.

In a year like no other, a sense of community has never been more important. However, coronavirus presents a unique challenge to our community, one which requires a collaborative, cooperative and digital approach. We are fortunate to be part of a profession that strives to be collegiate, innovative and adaptive – one which, in times of crisis, endures. One response to the coronavirus crisis put community above all else, creating a digital platform for Scottish lawyers to come together to learn, stay connected and laugh.

Having been in operation for just a year, the small and agile team at Hey Legal are just getting started. A news section has been added and the team have also been running virtual conferences.

Ally Thomson, founder of Hey Legal, said:

“2020 has been a year like no other, especially in terms of launching a business. We have kept our core content free thus far and established a place in the Scottish legal sector, and we will now look to build out our business model with some paid for events and memberships. We are indebted to all the contributors who have engaged with us.
