As a member of the Society you will receive updates from national Council meetings, proposed changes to statute, etc. Such topics could change the landscape of solicitors’ firms and it is imperative that you have your say. The Society will respond accordingly to and put pressure on the national Law Society to advance our interests for the best of the legal profession.
