We're here for you

To help law practices and individual solicitors maximise efficiency and productivity, the Law Society offers a range of personal support and business information services.

The Law Society has established these services in recognition that complex legal and personal issues often require a second opinion and, often, an impartial one external to your usual networks.

The information in this section explains how to access various kinds of assistance, including links to relevant organisations and informative publications.
