Delivering for our members – our Business review
Today we published Delivering for our members – The Law Society’s Business review for 2017, highlighting the wide range of our activity. A copy is attached for you.

Last year we set out the member needs we wanted to address. Some things we do on behalf of the whole profession, others are to meet specific member needs and challenges.

During a year of significant developments, we have made great progress with the work we do and the review highlights just some of our key achievements and examples of the impact we have had.
