The Law Society

The Law Society of England and Wales (officially named The Law Society) is the professional association that represents and governs the solicitors’ profession for the jurisdiction of England and Wales. It provides services and support to practising and training solicitors as well as serving as a sounding board for law reform. Members of the Society are often consulted when important issues are being debated in Parliament or by the executive. The Society was formed in 1825.

The Hall of The Law Society is at 113 Chancery Lane, London but it also has offices in Cardiff (to deal with the Wales jurisdiction and Assembly) and Brussels, Belgium (to deal with European Union law). A president is elected annually to serve for one year. The current president is Jonathan Smithers. Barristers in England and Wales have a similar professional body, the General Council of the Bar, commonly known as the Bar Council.
