We now have more members practising in the UK outside of London who are vital to the continued growth and success of our Association. Our regional membership is split into 8 groups (East Anglia, Midlands, North, South Coast, South West and South Wales regions and Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland) each providing their own training and support networks.

Attending training and social events organised in a region gives our members an inexpensive opportunity to gain CPD training, network and share best practice with other solicitors in varying stages of their career and from a variety of backgrounds. Our regional members include sole practitioners through to global law firms – everyone is welcome. Experienced barristers deliver much of our training which also provides a platform for you to build stronger relationships with a variety of Chambers and barristers. Upcoming training and events in your area will be listed in the Events section.

Our success in the area of law reform and lobbying is determined by the ideas and feedback from our members. We want to know what our members think. We will continue to successfully lobby Parliament where we feel the law needs reform. The Chair of the Regional Committee sits on our Executive Committee which meets on a monthly basis and makes sure that our regional members have a voice.
