Guide to getting involved in YRes

2. What is YRes?

Naomi House Hampshire YResYRes is Resolution’s network of family law professionals at the start of their careers. YRes is aimed at meeting the needs of Resolution members and junior practitioners with up to 10 years PQE

As a Resolution member first and foremost, YRes members are committed to promoting the Resolution Code of Practice and adopting a constructive approach to family law issues. Each YRes group is integrated with their Resolution Regional Committee. Working together, both groups benefit from shared knowledge, strength and resources.

YRes exists to ensure that there is an opportunity for Resolution members who are starting out on their career path to share their experiences, concerns and ideas, ask questions, and develop skills and knowledge in a friendly and supportive environment.

Regional YRes groups also provide a wide range of seminars, training and social events throughout the year.

National YRes

Following the national launch of YRes at National Conference in Brighton in 2015, a permanent National YRes Committee was formed. The committee exists to ensure that the voice of YRes is at the heart of all discussions and decisions made across the whole of Resolution and to provide support to our junior members and regional committees.

National YRes Chair Sarah Green sits on the National Committee and represents YRes’s interests at the highest level.

Resolution's regional structure

Across the country, Resolution is represented by regional committees, who run events and promote Resolution across their regions. There are 42 regional committees. Each regional committee represents its region nationally through the Regional Liaison Committee to ensure a joined-up approach between the work that takes place regionally and what is being achieved nationally.

Many regions also have their own YRes group which is linked to their regional committee.
