Business review 2017/18

Our business review highlights just some of our achievements in 2017/18.

We promoted the profession, raising its profile through our Solicitor Brand and Global Legal Centre campaigns, celebrating the best work in the profession and encouraging the best people to join it.

We influenced for impact, acting as the voice of the profession on the issues that are important to our members. We represented solicitors in Westminster, Cardiff, Brussels and with other governments across the world.

We kept our members up to date, providing the latest news, information and research from the profession. Our research provided expert insights, informing the influencing work of our boards and committees.

We supported practice excellence, supporting solicitors whether they work for themselves, in-house or at a law firm. We offered helpline support and advice, new practice notes, toolkits, events, and access to communities.

We were our members' career companion, giving them the tools to develop their careers, expertise and businesses. We helped them plan for and take their next career step.

We made operational improvements, focusing on being more efficient and delivering better value for money for our members.
