Law Society

The Law Society of England and Wales is a professional body that represents solicitors in England and Wales.

The Law Society provides support to solicitors during their training, and after they have qualified.

The Society, however, does not directly handle complaints about solicitors made by members of the public. If you wish to make a complaint about a solicitor, you should contact the Legal Ombudsman.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) is formally part of the Law Society, but acts an independent body, and regulates the professional conduct of solicitors.
