  • 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.

    • Mortgage fraud

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