Our mission is to build a strong relationship with our members, whether you’re in private practice or work in-house. Our relationship managers:
Relationship managers are the link between you and the Law Society. They work to make sure your views are heard and built into our work, influencing our consultation responses and the regulatory environment solicitors work in.
Relationship managers gather feedback from you, and we use this to design and develop new products and services based on your needs. For example, we’ve developed guidance on important topics within the legal sector such as GDPR and regulation of the profession.
We keep you up to date with the latest news, research and insights that affect your practice. Our legal experts on topics such as regulation and compliance, GDPR and access to justice attend regional events and roundtables often held in partnership with local law societies. These are open to all members.
We promote training and events taking place near you. For example, we hold annual conferences outside London on topics such as risk and compliance, and private client practice. We also frequently hold roundtables and local events with Law Society office holders.
Our partnerships with external stakeholders add value to your business.
We have a network of representatives throughout England and Wales. Find out more about how we can help you in:
