Implementing the strategic vision and direction of the Law Society of New South is Michael Tidball, the Society’s Chief Executive Officer.
Michael has been involved with the Society and the legal profession for a number of years. Prior to his appointment as CEO in 2006, Michael served as the Society’s Chief Operating Officer and currently also serves as a Director on the Boards of the College of Law and the LawCover group of companies.
During his many years with the Society, Michael has been instrumental in leading the organisation through key periods of change.
In 2004, membership of the Law Society became voluntary and much of Michael’s work has since revolved around the importance of maintaining the Society’s position as one of the most formidable member associations in the country. To date, the Law Society has succeeded in maintaining its high levels of voluntary membership and in global terms is considered one of the leading legal professional associations in the world.
Aside from his work with the Law Society, Michael has dedicated himself to helping enhance the role of the Law Council of Australia. This focus will continue to be particularly important considering the need for a National Profession that can only be achieved through a streamlined and uniform regulatory environment.
Prior to joining the Law Society in 2001, Michael worked in senior roles in both the government and private sectors. He was a senior adviser to Ministers in the Greiner and Fahey Governments, and has worked in the health and insurance sectors in the corporate environment.
Michael is a graduate of the University of New South Wales.
