Access to justice is on the verge of a crisis. We will be focusing on three core goals, and need the help of our members to achieve them.
The future of the UK's relationship with the rest of the EU is a hot topic. The Law Society is contributing to the debate.
The Law Society continues to oppose legal aid cuts. Our priority is to continue to influence the Ministry of Justice in our members' interests.
We aim to create a stable and competitive insurance market to ensure affordable and accessible insurance for the entire profession.
We have been working hard to respond to a series of unwelcome and often confusing changes to lender panel membership.
Lord Justice Jackson has recommended sweeping changes to litigation funding and solicitors' costs. We believe the proposals will reduce access to justice, increase costs to business and result in a windfall for insurers.
The Law Society is concerned by the absence of regulation for will writing and the damage that the absence of such protection can have on the public.
We are working with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and other defence practitioner groups to resolve a number of concerns over CPS plans for digital working.
The Law Society is committed to assisting solicitors in protecting themselves and their firms from being exploited.
The Law Society runs regular public-facing campaigns to promote the legal profession to consumers of legal services.
