The Council delegates responsibility for some functions to boards.
Four boards, collectively known as Law Society Boards, advise the Council on representative matters and carry out delegated functions:
There are two further boards, one responsible for the SRA, and the other responsible for the provision of shared support services to the Law Society and the SRA and for supporting the Council in its oversight of the SRA:
As well as these boards, there are committees reporting direct to Council on Audit, Council Members' Conduct, Council Membership, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Remuneration, and Scrutiny and Performance Review.
The Legal Affairs and Policy Board and the Regulatory Affairs Board are supported by a number of specialist policy committees dealing with particular areas of law.
Policy committee members are nominated from our wider membership, and a large majority of them are not from our Council.
