Our main objective is to engage and support in-house counsel by promoting best practice and addressing current issues and challenges facing the in-house community working in corporate and public sectors, not-for-profit organisations and charities.

The In-house Division works in close consultation with its Committee to help deliver its engagement programme by advising on how best the Society can support members who work as in-house lawyers. 

The in-house community is comprised of approx. 27,000 members in just under 7000 organisations. The split between sectors is approximately 60 per cent commerce, 30 per cent public and 10 per cent not-for-profit. About 50 per cent of our community are in Greater London, South East and East, however we do have large groups of members in the Midlands, North West, Yorkshire and the South West. 

The Committee is looking for new members who are currently employed in the following organisations:

  • commerce / business
  • public sector
  • not-for-profit.
