The City of Westminster and Holborn Law Society (CWHLS) is a vibrant group of legal professionals with widely differing specialities, experience and size of firm. The Society’s role, on behalf of its members, is to represent lawyers in Central London and provide a forum for discussion and networking. Its sub committees enable the Society to comment on legal developments and, through our Council Members, your voice can be heard on the National Law Society Council.
CWHLS actively encourages regional and international networking through a variety of legal and social events by:
• working with other regional Law Societies in England and Wales,
• liasing with the national Law Society
• being a member of the Fédération des Barreaux d’Europe
• being twinned with Berliner Rechtsanwaltskammer and L’Il.lustre Col.legi de l’Advocacia de Barcelona (ICAB).
The Society’s magazine keeps members up-to-date with activities including profiles of individuals or firms. All members are able to contribute articles.
Comprising around 10,000 admitted solicitors and many more legal professionals, the CWHLS constituency stretches from the south side of Oxford Street across the old Metropolitan Borough of Holborn to the City of London boundary. Many of our members are from within this area but you are welcome to join even if you are based in another geographical area.
