The Small Firms Division is looking for new members to join our Small Firms committee.

The Small Firms Divison is a demographic web-based community offering a range of free membership benefits.

It has a yearly engagement programme including conferences, events and online content focusing on supporting practitioners and encouraging best practice.

The Small Firms committee - a group of enthusiastic individuals with an interest in the business of smaller law firms - advises the Law Society on how best to support, promote and represent small firm practitioner members and helps to shape the engagement programme.

We welcome applications from candidates who can articulate distinct needs, support requirements and interests of members working in small law firms, covering issues such as risk, regulation and compliance, business efficacy, and innovation.

We aim to have the following representative mix of members:

  • sole practitioners
  • members from firms with two to four partners

To apply, please email with your CV and a statement of up to 500 words outlining how you can contribute to developing engagement with the small firm community, including practical examples, demonstrating an understanding of what you consider to be the important issues.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate:

  • a sound knowledge and understanding of the business of small law firms
  • an interest in the Small Firms Division
  • the experience and drive to deliver training and support, and
  • an ability to represent the ideas and views of small law firm owners and practitioners.

The deadline for return of applications is 28 February.

Appointments will be made on merit following and open and transparent process.

A selection panel will consider the applications and shortlisted candidates will be contacted by 14 March.

The Law Society encourages applicants from all eligible candidates, irrespective of gender, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation.
