Local Law Societies are run by volunteers from the legal profession, each person being in the role for a year before passing the ‘baton’ on. Each Society provides services and support to local practising and training lawyers and is affiliated with the national Law Society of England and Wales. They host social and charitable events, training and serve as a sounding board for law reform. In some areas, they host an awards event where excellence in legal service delivery is celebrated.
