News and Media

The Law Society's policy stances and activities are reinforced through a robust media presence. The Society attracts state, national and international coverage on topical issues. Our ability to react quickly and publicly to legal debates has cemented our position as a key organisation for journalists seeking legal comment, and as a powerful leader and commentator.
