Committees

The Society has a number of committees covering the management of the Society and specialist areas of law.

These meetings are held monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly, usually at lunchtime with one or two exceptions.  The meetings usually take place at Liverpool Law Society offices in Helix, Edmund Street, Liverpool, L3 9NY.  General Committee is made up of the 27 directors of Liverpool Law Society and meets once a month.   

All specialist sub committees report to the General Committee.  The specialist sub committees are made up of Liverpool Law Society’s own Council members and co-opted members.

Please see here for the Code of Conduct which applies to all committees.
