Who we are

  • Our organisation

    The Law Society is the professional body for solicitors. Our role is to represent, support and promote solicitors in the UK and internationally. We also support a fair and just society by speaking out to defend the rule of law and access to justice for everyone when we believe these basic principles are under threat.

    Come inside and take a look around:

    Our values

    Our culture code is a guiding set of principles and values about who we are and who we aspire to be. It defines our culture.

    We value clarity, trust, respect and excellence.

    Our values guide what we say and how we act with each other, our members, our suppliers and our stakeholders. Everyone working at the Law Society agrees to respect and demonstrate these principles through their day-to-day decision making and behaviour.

    We will recognise, celebrate and reward people who demonstrate our culture. We will hold each other to account by speaking up when we see behaviour that doesn’t support our culture, and when we do.

    Our people

    Employees at the Law Society help to make sure that solicitors across England and Wales are represented effectively. They also help provide a wide range of products and services to our members, including helplines, books, events and accreditation schemes.

    We employ over 400 people; the majority in London but also in the Midlands, Wales and Brussels.

    Here are some results from our 2015 employee survey:

    • 82% of people see our organisation as an equal opportunities employer
    • 82% of people believe our organisation respects individual differences
    • 88% of people feel they / their team are encouraged to come up with solutions to work related problems
