There are currently co-opted vacancies on the Membership Board, and a vacancy on the Conveyancing Land Law Committee.

The Membership Board is currently looking to appoint to two seats for co-opted members to complement the background, skills and experience of existing members. The Board plays a key role in overseeing the management of the Law Society's relationships with the profession at large and the services offered by the Society.
