About

Overview

Established in 1914 and incorporated in 1915, The Warwickshire Law Society is over 100 years old and represents and promotes over 500 solicitors, trainee solicitors and legal executives in Coventry and Warwickshire.  Our mission, as a membership organisation, is to provide our members with support and assistance, represent them on a regional and national basis, and make sure their views are heard.

 

As well as supporting our members locally, we provide relevant and varied training courses and circulate topical news issues such as law reform, practice updates and changes to legislation.

 

The Warwickshire Law Society aims to create stronger ties across the region’s legal and business professionals. We want to engage with all age groups, from those just entering the profession to senior partners and key decision makers.  To do this, the Warwickshire Law Society organises social and fundraising events and networking opportunities.

 

Joining the society is a great way to meet legal and business professionals throughout our area of operation.  Importantly, by being a member you are automatically included in our comprehensive online directory of solicitors.  This is a valuable marketing tool for our members which can be accessed by businesses and members of the general public.


Council

The Warwickshire Law Society has a governing Board of Directors (“the Council”) which is supported by six Committees.  This structure has been designed to make it relevant and accessible to the wide variety of legal professionals that make up our membership.

 

The Council and Committees have a remit to strengthen and raise the profile of the Society, as well as encouraging participation from legal professionals across the region.

Young Lawyers

The Warwickshire Law Society Young Lawyers Group was formed in 2003 to provide social and networking support to solicitors up to 7 years qualified. They have an exciting, varied programme of events. For more information about the group, their activities and how to join visit their website at www.wlsyounglawyers.co.uk.

 

The Society recognises the wealth of young talent we have in our region annually with the Young Lawyer of The Year Award. We invite Members to nominate from their firms those whom they consider worthy of one of the Society’s most prestigious awards. The nominations are narrowed down to a short list of three finalists who are invited to the Society’s Annual Dinner. The Successful candidate is announced and presented with an engraved glass trophy which is the winner’s to keep. This award is currently kindly sponsored by Robert Walters.
