Far South Coast & Monaro

Regional Solicitors

About us 

The Far South Coast and Monaro Law Society encompasses an area from Ulladulla in the north, to Eden in the south, and Jindabyne in the west. The majority of our members are solicitors with small regional firms.

As a regional law society we encourage collegiality within our legal community by providing members with a platform from which to gain and share resources and knowledge.

We also strongly encourage young lawyers to establish connections with other young lawyers in the state through our young lawyers’ Facebook group, the Law Society’s Young Lawyers’ mentoring program, and the participation in BushWeb programs. 

We aim to provide quality, relevant and cost effective Continuing Legal Education (CPD) opportunities for practitioners in our region. We welcome any ideas and suggestions for upcoming CPD programs. Please contact one of our committee members if you wish to discuss.
