The Law Society’s representational activities at the EU level focus primarily on issues that affect the regulation of the legal profession and the way in which lawyers practise. In particular, these include the Directives on lawyers, legislation on the provision of services, competition law as it applies to professional services, international trade in services, anti-money laundering legislation and policy that impacts on questions of deontology.

The Law Society’s activities also cover other areas of EU legal policy that are pertinent to solicitors’ areas of practice and to the advice they give to their clients. This includes a broad range of policy areas including civil law, company law and financial services, competition law, criminal law, consumer law, employment law, environment law, family law, intellectual property law, and tax law.
