The public affairs and campaigns team is at the heart of the Law Society's work influencing government, parliament and key stakeholders in the UK.
By harnessing the collective knowledge, experience and expertise of the legal profession, the Society can lead in developing public policy solutions to challenges facing the legal services sector.
As the Society is a professional body governed by a royal charter, its work with government and parliament is underpinned by its duty to act in the public interest. We work closely with the Society's members when engaging and influencing political stakeholders and policy-makers.
