Members areas of practice are now listed against individual practitioners as well as firms. If you would like to update your own areas of practice so that you'll be searchable on our "Find a Lawyer" page, simply log in to your member dashboard, and click on "My details" in the left hand menu. You can then review and update your details as required.

Practising Certificate renewals starting soon!
Please make sure your contact details are up to date on your member dashboard before the practising certificate renewal period commences in May. It's vital that we have your current contact details so we can email you your renewal instructions.
In line with the Law Society's ongoing commitment to sustainability, practising certificates will now be issued electronically as the default (however paper copies will still be available on request, and you can always download a PDF for your own records).
Simply log in and follow the instructions on your Member Dashboard.
