The Law Society represents solicitors in England and Wales. The Law Society works globally to support and represent its members, promoting the highest professional standards and the rule of law. From negotiating with and lobbying the profession's regulators, government and others, to offering training and advice, we're here to help, protect and promote solicitors across England and Wales.

The Law Society’s International Department works on behalf of its members to reduce barriers facing solicitors of England and Wales working in overseas markets and establishes and maintains links with international stakeholders. With offices in London and Brussels, the International Department provides practical support, training, information and advice to law firms and legal professionals working abroad or exploring international opportunities.

The International Division, run by the International Department is the Law Society’s membership platform. Membership provides law firms, in-house legal teams and legal practitioners with the contacts, tools and latest market intelligence they need to develop their international links and do business in the international marketplace. Foreign lawyers are encouraged to join and take advantage of this service.
