ICAS chief Hudson leaves to take on same role at Law Society

ICAS chief executive Des Hudson is leaving the institute to take up the same
role at the Law Society.

Hudson has overseen the institute during busy times for the profession,
fighting strongly against ICAEW’s proposed name change and attracting record
number of students for ICAS.

‘Des has provided strong leadership at a time of significant change in the
profession. His background as a former practising solicitor means that the
opportunity to take up the role at The Law Society was too tempting to turn
down,’ said ICAS president Mike Hathorn.

Hudson held the role at ICAS for two years.
