The Law Society is committed to promoting inclusion in the legal profession, reflecting the diversity of our society. The LGBT Lawyers Division is the community for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) lawyers and our allies.
We provide an opportunity for LGBT solicitors to have their voice heard. Our members work in private practice, and in-house within corporate, public sector and not-for-profit organisations.
We bring LGBT lawyers together to share best practice, and address current issues and challenges in a supportive environment. We deliver key news, regulatory and management information and bring together our services that are relevant to you.
Make your voice heard by engaging with the Law Society on diversity matters. Membership of the LGBT is free, and is open to all solicitors and their allies.
