Liverpool Law Society boasts 2000 or so members in practice; it is one of the largest local Law Societies in England and Wales. Membership is broad and varies from practitioners engaged in high-value commercial work to complex charity work.
The Society prides itself in being at the forefront of debate and has been able to communicate on behalf of its members their concerns in a number of areas both public and professional.
It also runs an extensive legal training programme with approximately 100 seminars and conferences organised every year.
The benefits of membership are numerous and include representation, reduced rates for legal training, invitations to social and networking events, a copy of ‘Liverpool Law’ the Society’s monthly magazine and reduced rates on venue hire. Events organised by the Society for its membership include the Legal Awards, the Annual Dinner, the Conkerton Memorial Lecture, business networking events and a ceremony to welcome Newly Qualified Solicitors and Pupil Barristers to the legal profession.
