How to join a committee
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.
There are three broad categories of committees:
- Regulatory committees – perform statutory duties under the Legal Profession Uniform Law (NSW)
- Liaison committees – linked to other professions or organisations
- Policy committees
By drawing on the insights of committees, the Law Society can meet its statutory duties and act as a major player
in law reform and policy debates.
