Representation


BLS is an active member of the Association of South West Law Societies and the Joint 5 (with Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester Law Societies) through which officers meet regularly with their counterparts. This relationship offers a wider view of the needs and requirements of the profession and creates a strong and effective lobbying force. Effective communication channels are maintained with the national Law Society, the Solicitors’ Regulatory Authority, the judiciary, the Ministry of Justice, the local Bar, the local authorities, advice agencies, academic institutions, organisations from the voluntary sector, consumer bodies and other professional and commercial bodies. It works closely with the local groups of Junior Lawyers’ Division, Association of Women Solicitors and Institute of Legal Executives.
