The Law Society of New South Wales Scheme


The Law Society of New South Wales Scheme (also known as the Limitation of Liability Scheme) is an exclusive service provided by the Law Society for its Solicitor Members in private practice.

It is specifically designed to enable private practice Members to limit their civil liability to selected amounts, provided they meet the Scheme’s requirements. Participation in the Scheme is renewed annually from 22 November to 21 November the following year.

Although Law Society membership makes you eligible for the Scheme, participation in the Scheme is not an automatic benefit of Law Society membership. If you wish to participate, download the Information Bulletin for more details about the Scheme, including coverage, eligibility requirements and application procedures.
