Happy New Year! Our team is excited to be back at work today and publish the first edition of our journal for 2021. We are looking forward to making this year a successful one for the ILSPA community. Please read our article on how we are here to support you with your career.

In this month's lead article, SecsintheCity talks to Legal PA of the Year 2020, Tanya Jennings. Tanya, PA to a partner at global law firm Freshfields, took the time to answer a few questions about her work, and what it was like to be named the Legal PA of the Year at the recent awards ceremony.

January is a great time to think about goals. For those of you that would like to gain new skills and achieve a qualification, we have some useful advice about creating a study schedule. If your goal is to have a calm and productive year, Legal PA and Wellness and Resilience Coach, Natasja King, has some simple and quick stress relief techniques for you. Perhaps your aim for this year is to embrace new remote working habits? If so, you can read TotallyLegal's guidance on how to optimise your home workspace

Whatever your goals are for this year, ILSPA is here to help and support you every step of the way!
