The Law Society of Northern Ireland is a professional body, which has the authority to discipline, educate and regulate practising solicitors in Northern Ireland.

Under the Solicitors (Northern Ireland) Order 1976, the Law Society acts as the regulatory authority governing the education, accounts, discipline and professional conduct of solicitors in order to maintain the independence, ethical standards, professional competence and quality of services offered to the public. It carries out these functions to ensure that solicitors receive the highest level of support and that their clients receive the required standard of work.

Since its establishment in 1922 under Royal Charter, the Law Society of Northern Ireland has proven to be an exemplar of legal professionalism and service delivery. Undoubtedly its positive and contributory role has helped shape the legal system within Northern Ireland.

Fundamental to the success of the Law Society over the decades has been our ability to represent its membership on key issues, to advocate on their behalf and to regulate the profession when required.
