Make a difference by joining a Law Society Committee
Committee membership is an exclusive benefit for Law Society members. Joining a committee is a great way to give back to the profession, influence law reform and develop networks in different areas of the profession.
The majority of the committees meet every two months. Some committees meet more frequently if their workload requires. It is expected that members attend the majority of committee meetings and respond to communications from Law Society staff regarding committee business. The functions of the committees include:
- Identify, develop and draft legal and policy responses within the scope of the committee’s Terms of Reference.
- Contribute to the development, drafting and review of Law Society submissions.
- Assist with identifying relevant topics for Continuing Professional Development seminars and presenting them.
- Participate in Law Society working groups if required.
- Identify content and draft articles for Brief magazine.
Each committee has Terms of Reference which set out the objects, membership requirements and functions of the committee. You may express your interest in up to three committees. Committee selection is highly competitive and you may not be appointed to your preferred committees.
