The Law Society exists to represent, promote and support all solicitors, so they in turn can help their clients.
We also work to ensure that no-one is above the law and to protect everyone's right to have access to justice. We promote England and Wales as the jurisdiction of choice and the vital role legal services play in our economy.
We work internationally to open up markets to our members and to defend human rights while supporting our members with opportunities in the domestic market.
Our culture code is a guiding set of principles and values about who we are and who we aspire to be. It defines our culture.
We value clarity, trust, respect and excellence.
Our values guide what we say and how we act with each other, our members, our suppliers and our stakeholders. Everyone working at the Law Society agrees to respect and demonstrate these principles through their day-to-day decision making and behaviour.
We will recognise, celebrate and reward people who demonstrate our culture. We will hold each other to account by speaking up when we see behaviour that doesn’t support our culture, and when we do.
The Law Society is committed to principles of equality and diversity, and to working with our members to support practice in these areas. Promoting an environment that welcomes and values diverse backgrounds, thinking, skills and experience, and which allows everyone - regardless of race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marriage and civil partnership or pregnancy and maternity - to thrive and fulfil their potential, is vital for the long-term success of the Law Society and the legal profession.
