Supporting you locally

  • Our mission is to build a strong relationship with our members, whether you’re in private practice or work in-house. Our relationship managers:

    • represent your views
    • help you access our services
    • add value to your business

    Representing your views

    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.

    Developing new products and services

    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.

    Keeping you up to date

    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.

    Promoting events and services

    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.

    Building partnerships with external stakeholders

    Our partnerships with external stakeholders add value to your business.
