The business review gives you more detail about the work we did last year including:

  • Promoting our profession, highlighting ethical and professional standards, legal education and training, and the value of using a solicitor at home and abroad.
  • Influencing for impact, acting as the voice of the profession on the issues that are important to our members. We represent solicitors in Westminster, Cardiff, Brussels and with other governments across the world.
  • Serving our members, supporting solicitors whether they work for themselves, in-house or a law firm. We offer helpline support and advice, improved websites, new practice notes, toolkits, events, access to communities and published research on key issues.
  • Operational improvements, focussing on being more efficient whilst better managing and understanding our costs. All of this helps us reduce expenditure against our budget and deliver value for money for our members.
