Practice notes are a valuable way of understanding best practice in many areas of law. Members are encouraged to sign up to My Law Society from June to access all practice notes in detail.
We know from our member feedback that practice notes are among the most highly valued resources the Law Society offers. We harness the expertise of the best in the profession through our expert committees of volunteers and we share this knowledge with everyone to support good practice.
Our practice notes cover issues for the whole profession from legal professional privilege to small issues critical to specific areas of law. The range of practice in topics is almost an A-Z, from to Access and Disclosure of an Incapacitated Person’s Will to Working with Transgender Employees. Each month over 100,000 pages of practice notes are viewed on our website, making them one of our most popular sources of support for members. These pages are open to everyone.
We will continue this free access, but we want to serve website visitors better by understanding more about who uses these pages. From June, while basic information about each note will still be available without signing up, we will be asking visitors to sign up to My Law Society in order to see the detail of our practice notes. Some practice notes currently under review will continue to be available without signing up.
Sign-up is free and simple, it only takes a few minutes. Over 10,000 people have already signed up. As well as registering your basic contact information, you can choose to give information about your areas of practice, special interests and your career. The more you give, the better we can tailor the information we provide in future. For example, My Law Society creates a tailored home page personal to you, with the latest information from the Law Society website and the Gazette about your practice interests.
You will need to show that you have a practising certificate by giving your MySRA registration to access further benefits. More detail can be added to your Find a Solicitor profile - benefits include access to our latest campaign materials promoting solicitors. Longer term, we aim to provide further benefits to registered members.
