Fran Eccles-Bech, Manchester Law Society

Judging Apprentice of the Year and Graduate of the Year

Fran joined Manchester Law Society as a secretary 30 years ago, (she tells people she was a child prodigy!) and became its Chief Executive in 1996.

Fran is a powerful advocate for her members.  With her detailed knowledge of, and contacts in the legal profession, and the wider business community, under her leadership, Manchester Law Society is a dynamic and respected organisation.

Her hobbies include walking the dog, gardening but only in the summer, shopping (NOT window), cooking for friends, reading when she gets a minute, trying to ride her motorbike (but she is a fair-weather rider and, she says, “only when I can fit into my leathers”) and very sadly, reality tv shows.
