The Law Society, through the Government and Parliamentary Affairs Unit, works closely with Westminster and Whitehall on a daily basis. However, timely contact by members with their local parliamentarian is hugely important to the lobbying process.
Solicitors' firms are very often at the heart of local economies and local communities. In addition to being businesses in their own right, directly contributing to the local economy and providing employment, solicitors are also responsible for substantial indirect benefits by providing timely, expert advice to businesses and individuals, solving problems and improving the efficiency of doing business.
Direct engagement by practitioners is vital to ensuring that government and parliament are constantly aware of the importance of the legal profession for our society and the economy.
