Using the Law Society across the UK


All practising solicitors in the UK will be accredited by their particular law society. This is your guarantee that the services that solicitors provide are of a high quality. Each law society also offers any additional training that is needed for a solicitor to offer their services in particular areas of the law. A good example is medical negligence. And each law society has a formal complaints procedure you can use if you feel the solicitor you have used has not delivered the high level of service you expected.

You can contact the Law Society of England and Wales at:

The Law Society's Hall
113 Chancery Lane
Telephone: 020 7242 1222

If you live in Wales, the Law Society has an additional office you can contact at:

Capital Tower
Greyfriars Road
CF10 3AG
Telephone: 029 2064 5254

Scotland has its own law society. You can find The Law Society of Scotland at:

26 Drumsheugh Gardens
Telephone: 0131 226 7411

This law society was established by the Legal Aid and Solicitors (Scotland) Act 1949. As many of the laws in Scotland differ from the rest of the UK, it is important that you contact a solicitor in your part of the country. Contact Law has recommended solicitors across Scotland you can get in touch with.

If you are in Northern Ireland you can find your Law Society at:

Blackhall Place
Dublin 7
Telephone: + 353 1672 4800

All law societies exist to not only support the work of practising solicitors, but also protect the public when they are accessing legal services from their members. Each law society can’t give direct legal advice to you, but after you have located a solicitor in your area, the law society in your part of the UK can be invaluable if you later have an issue with a solicitor you are using.

If you would like to obtain legal advice, Contact Law can put you in touch with a local specialist solicitor free of charge. So, if you have any questions or would like our help in finding local solicitors please call us on 0800 1777 162 or complete the web-form above.
