The Law Society’s International Division has signed a friendship agreement with the State Bar of California’s International Law Section to strengthen links between the organisations.

California is a key US market for UK law firms and their clients. In recent years the Law Society has organised seminars and networking events in San Francisco and Los Angeles to promote English legal services and links with UK law firms.

This agreement will see more joint events and visits between the organisations starting with a visit from the Section to London in April 2015.
