More than 30 active committees or working groups have been established by volunteer members of the Law Society, covering a range of substantive law and other areas of interest. Many of the Law Society’s committees deal with references for comment from external organisations on various legal, policy and practice issues.
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. Committee members are expected to comply with the Law Society’s Committee Bylaws, Code of Conduct and Conflict of Interest Guidelines.
Each Committee has a Terms of Reference which sets out the objectives, 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.
To join a committee please complete a Committee Expression of Interest form.
