Law associations and groups

LPLC believes that there are many risk management benefits to legal practitioners being members of local law associations and local informal groups.

Sharing knowledge and experience, providing and receiving help and guidance from likeminded people are some of the benefits.  This kind of support is an important risk management tool especially for practitioners in sole or small practices.

LPLC encourages practitioners to join a local association or group or set up one themselves.

Download a list of associations and groups that are known to the LPLC. Where contact details are not given you can email us and specify which association or group you are interested in joining.  Your email will be forwarded to the relevant association or group.

Please contact us if you would like us to consider including your group on our list.
