About us 

The Central West Law Society covers Bathurst, Blayney, Cowra, Forbes, Parkes, Grenfell, Condobolin, Orange, Rylstone, Millthorpe and Canowindra. We aim to provide high quality, relevant, cost effective CLE opportunities and some social events for practitioners in our region. Our events are open to financial members and non-members alike.

Join US & Events

Our annual financial membership for the Central West Law Society remains at $20 per annum. It provides you with discounts to our MCLE seminars and social events and I hope you will continue to be a financial member by completing and returning the membership form. The CWLS also welcomes our new practitioners to the region and encourages those who have not already joined to do so.

We are holding welcome drinks in February at Orange, the details of which are yet to be finalised. We will hold further social events throughout the year but if other areas wish to host a function for local lawyers please do not hesitate to contact the CWLS Committee to discuss how we can assist to fund and promote the event.

We have a half day CLE planned for Friday 23 March in Orange. This will be on Elder Law and Capacity topics.

We will again hold our annual conference in November 2018, this year in Orange.
