Members include employed solicitors, sole practitioners, firms specialising in particular areas of law, firms carrying on general practice, substantial regional firms, & firms with international connections. As a result, the range and breadth of expertise of its members for both the private and business client is extensive.
The Society’s principal objects include:
- The protection of the character, status, rights and interests of its members and of the profession of solicitors generally.
- The promotion of honorable practice among solicitors.
- The consideration of questions affecting the profession at large, or the alteration or administration of the law, and
- The promotion of legal education.
