This information is provided by the Law Society.

The Law Society is the independent professional body for solicitors in England and Wales. We’re run by and for our members. Our role is to be the voice of solicitors, to drive excellence in the profession and to safeguard the rule of law.

On behalf of the profession, we influence the legislative and regulatory environment in the public interest. At home, we promote the profession and the vital role legal services play in our economy. Around the world, we promote England and Wales as a global legal centre, open new markets and defend human rights. To learn about our business plan and strategy, please visit our website

Our members are at the heart of everything we do. Whether you’re working in a high-street practice, a commercial, regional or City firm, an alternative business structure (ABS) or in-house for a private, public or charitable organisation, the Law Society exists for you.

We’re committed to ensuring that you can make the most of opportunities and can respond to the challenges of a changing legal sector. We aim to deliver value for money for the public interest funding contribution that you make as part of your practising fee, and when you choose to pay for additional products and services.

Junior Solicitors Network

The Junior Solicitors Network (JSN) is a community for junior solicitors. It advises the Law Society on how it should support junior solicitors and offers members the chance to discuss areas of concern, have their views heard and network with other junior lawyers.

It’s completely free to become a JSN member and you’re automatically a member if you’re a solicitor with up to five years’ post-qualification experience. You have access to:

  • an online hub with resources dedicated to issues of interest to junior lawyers;
  • free regional seminars and networking for junior lawyers;
  • the opportunity to attend the annual JSN summit in September 2024;
  • a range of topical webinars, events, training and courses (free or paid);
  • practice advice helpline;
  • discounted membership in legal practice-based communities (property law, private client law, dispute resolution, competition law, risk and compliance); and
  • career clinics and guidance.

Aspiring solicitors are welcome to attend events for junior lawyers, take part in online training as well as visit the online hub with resources dedicated to junior lawyers. To help you stay up to date with news, resources and events for junior solicitors, please sign up for a free MyLS account and add this topic for easy access to information and resources to support your career.
