The Law Society is run by and for our members. We are the voice of solicitors, driving excellence in the profession and safeguarding the rule of law. With the guidance of our specialist committees:

  • we influence the legislative and regulatory environment in the interest of the profession and the public
  • we keep members up to date with sector news and develop advice and guidance to support good practice
  • we promote the profession and legal services nationally and we promote England and Wales as a global legal centre
