As the representative of solicitors in NSW, the Law Society speaks on behalf of the legal profession, and advocates for changes to the law that benefit the entire community.
This section provides information about the main avenues through which we do this, and highlights our significant advocacy projects.
Publications & Resources
We deliver news straight into your email inbox and provide high-quality books for your library. We also share our research papers and presentations, which can be downloaded for free.
Law Society Committees
Law Society Committees have powers, authorities and tasks delegated by the Council. Consisting of dedicated volunteers, each committee focuses on a particular area of law, pooling together specialist skills and experience in order to scrutinise legislation, Court decisions and other government policies.
Advancement of Women
The Law Society's Advancement of Women in the legal profession initiative is designed to encourage the development of working cultures and arrangements that help female lawyers achieve career progression and job satisfaction.
The Law Society is committed to advocating for the protection and promotion of the rights of Indigenous people in NSW, and in providing opportunities for the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait individuals and communities to be heard by governments and other institutions.
Library & Shop
The Law Society Library has a comprehensive collection of law reports, precedents, text books, loose leaf books and digital resources. Research services are available on request. The shop on Level 1 offers member discounts on a range of publications, legal documents and merchandise. Alternatively, visit our new e-shop.
