She had held the position of vice president for the last 18 months .
Now in its 202nd year, the law society exists to promote the interests of the legal profession - regardless of size - in Kent and be its voice locally.
Alexandra Gordon said: “KLS plays a key role in supporting and promoting the profession in Kent. I have played an active role in the society for seven years and to be appointed to this position is a great honour. I am really looking forward to taking up the reins alongside my work at Brachers and helping drive the society’s activities forward.
"In such challenging times, I am excited by the opportunity to support the legal community.
"As president, I have made it my mission to promote mental health within the profession, which is so important when many of us are still working from home and not interacting with other lawyers in the ways we were used to.”
Having qualified as a lawyer in 2010, she has spent her career at legal firms in the county and is now based at Brachers' new Canterbury office .
Joanna Worby, Brachers managing partner, said: "In Brachers’ 125th year it is great to see that one of our own has again taken on the helm of our profession’s voice within the county. There are challenging times ahead for many in the profession but I’m confident that Alexandra can be our voice and provide the support we all need.”
