The Law Society’s website provides information on a range of legal topics and has a directory of solicitors that members of the public can search to find a solicitor in their area.
The process of using the Law Society involves the following steps:
- To find a solicitor, one can use the Law Society’s “Find a Solicitor” search tool on their website, which allows the user to search for a solicitor by location and area of law.
- Once the user has found a solicitor they would like to instruct, they can contact the solicitor directly to discuss their case.
- The solicitor will then provide advice and representation as required.
It’s important to note that the Law Society does not provide legal advice directly to the public, but their website provides information and guidance on a range of legal topics and how to find a solicitor.
