  • The Law Society campaigns on behalf of the profession on topics of importance within the legal sector. Find information and updates on current activity below.
  • Current campaigns

    • Access to justice

      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.

    • EU relationship

      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.

    • Criminal legal aid

      The Law Society continues to oppose legal aid cuts. Our priority is to continue to influence the Ministry of Justice in our members' interests.

    • Professional indemnity insurance

      We aim to create a stable and competitive insurance market to ensure affordable and accessible insurance for the entire profession.

    • Conveyancing panels

      We have been working hard to respond to a series of unwelcome and often confusing changes to lender panel membership.

    • Costs

      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.

    • Regulation of will writers

      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.

    • Digital working

      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.

    • Mortgage fraud

      The Law Society is committed to assisting solicitors in protecting themselves and their firms from being exploited.
