Appointments to committees

Do you want to make a difference?

We are looking for exceptional solicitors to join the Law Society's policy and regulatory committees to share their legal practice expertise.

You will join a talented team that contributes to decisions about legal policy affecting our profession.

Why should you become a committee member?

Get involved with issues as they develop, gain great policy-making experience and act as a voice for the profession in England and Wales. 

Appointments are for three years, subject to you continuing to meet applicable requirements, with potential for this to extend. 

Reasonable expenses are reimbursed, along with an annual incidental expenses allowance of £704 (this allowance amount is to be updated for 2019).

Our structure

We are governed by our Council and supported by boards and committees, who work together to discuss matters of legal and regulatory policy.

We are committed to the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion, and welcome applications from all members of the profession, irrespective of race, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability or religion.

Appointments to meet committee requirements are made on merit.
