Council elections are happening right now – have a say in who speaks on your behalf

You can have a direct say in who you want to represent your views and make sure your priorities are reflected as we develop our strategy and plans to support and represent solicitors across England and Wales, by voting in our Council elections.

If eligible to vote, you’ll be sent a link via email from UK-Engage where you can learn more about each of the candidates running and cast your vote.

If you haven’t received the email from UK-Engage, contact ballotrequest@lawsociety.org.uk before 12pm on Monday 8 July to request a ballot.

You’ve got until Friday 12 July to cast your vote.


We encourage you to contact your Council members with any issues you would like raised at Council meetings.

Geographical constituency seats

*The Holborn seat has been disestablished and will be incorporated into the Central London constituency at the 2024 round of elections.

Non-geographical seats

A number of our non-geographical seats, referred to as the work practice and characteristic seats, represent particular organisations of solicitors.

If the executive of the organisation chooses, these seats may be filled by nomination of the executive rather than by election. Other seats are filled by election.
