Law Society statement on Ukraine

Law Society of England and Wales president I. Stephanie Boyce said: “We are gravely concerned by the news from Ukraine.

"A clear principle of international law is that a state is prohibited from the use or threat of force against another state.

"We hope for a swift end to hostilities and our thoughts are with all those affected.

“We are supporting and will continue to support our members in the region.”
