Our members are at the heart of all we do, and we have ambitious plans for 2024/25 to deliver more of what you’ve told us is important to you.

Take part in the survey and share your views

Our main source of income is the funds we receive from our share of your practising certificate (PC) fee.

This determines what we can plan and deliver for solicitors, the profession and wider society.

It's important that you have a say in how we plan to deliver resources, products and services that are valuable to you and your practice.

With your input, we can make sure we're amplifying the powerful collective voice of our members and delivering on our vision to promote, protect and support solicitors, the rule of law and justice in England and Wales.

Your opinion matters

Around 950 solicitors took part in our consultation last year and shared their views on proposals for how we planned to support you in 2023/24.

By taking part in this consultation, you’ll be able to tell us what your priorities are for 2024/25 and beyond, as we begin to develop our 2025-2028 corporate strategy.

Our current three-year corporate strategy, which runs to October 2025. It sets out four objectives:

  1. promote the value of the profession and provide a compelling member offer
  2. protect the justice system and make sure it applies to everyone equally
  3. maximise our potential by growing our commercial reach, by being efficient and sustainable
  4. be an employer of choice for people who want to make a difference

Our Council, which is elected by members, and Board have urged us to be ambitious in our plans to maximise the value we give to solicitors across England and Wales.
