Law Society Committees: Greater than the sum of our parts


Every November we enjoy the flurry of activity as the Council is elected, the new President takes office and members join more than 20 Law Society Committees.

What you may not realise is that the Law Society’s Committees are made up of members who volunteer their time and expertise to support colleagues by providing information and advice relevant to specific practice areas.

The Committees provide information and guidance for solicitors by publishing regular practice notes in the Gazette, and they can also be found in the members’ area of the website.

Visit Practice Notes.

You can search for practice notes by year, area of practice or by visiting the relevant Committee page on the website.

Through the Committees, the Law Society also provides a wide range of useful precedents which members can download free of charge.

Committees are also your voice in Government and a key strategic objective of the Society is to provide a strong voice in policy debate to inform decision makers on matters pertaining to the justice system and law reform.

Visit Policy and Law Reform for helpful resources on the profession’s priorities, submissions to Government, Brexit, lobbying regulation and more.

For more information on the work of Committees, including membership, useful resources and CPD events, visit the Committees section of the website.
