Within the Law Society Group there are two independently run operating divisions:
The Law Society Professional Body
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.

Solicitors Regulation Authority
The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is the independent regulator of solicitors and law firms in England and Wales, protecting consumers and supporting the rule of law and the administration of justice. It oversees all education and training requirements necessary to practise as a solicitor, licensing individuals and firms to practise, setting the standards of the profession and regulating and enforcing compliance against these standards.
