Law Society membership

  • The Law Society is the independent professional body for solicitors in England and Wales.

    We are run by and for our members. Our role is to be the voice of solicitors, to drive excellence in the profession and to safeguard the rule of law.

    On behalf of the profession, we influence the legislative and regulatory environment in the public interest. At home we promote the profession and the vital role legal services play in our economy. Around the world we promote England and Wales as a global legal centre, open new markets and defend human rights.

    Whether you are working in a high street practice, a commercial, regional or city firm, an ABS (alternative business structure), or in-house for a private, public or charitable organisation, as your professional body the Law Society exists for you.

  • The Law Society is always there in the background. If I ever have any problems, I'll go to the Society for help. I find the helplines really useful and if there's ever any doubt they can guide you in the right direction. There's so much pressure to get things right that it's reassuring to be able to speak to someone for guidance.
