Law Council of Australia

The Law Society of Western Australia is a constituent body of the Law Council of Australia. The Law Council speaks on issues of national and international importance, federal law and the operation of federal courts and tribunals.

The Law Council advises governments, courts and federal agencies on ways in which the law and the justice system can be improved for the benefit of the community. It also represents the Australian legal profession overseas, and maintains close relationships with legal professional bodies throughout the world.

Through its specialist sections, working groups, standing and ad-hoc committees, the Law Council provides interest groups and professional development opportunities for lawyers across a variety of specialised areas of law.

The Law Council, with the help of its constituent bodies and sections, also presents major events such as the biennial Australian Legal Convention, and organises seminars, workshops and conferences on a wide range of legal issues.

The Law Council’s flagship publications are Profile and LCRChapter III is the Federal Litigation and Dispute Resolution Section newsletter.

The Law Management Hub is a repository of everything you need to know about law firm management. It’s developed by the Australian Law Management Group, a committee of the Law Council’s Legal Practice Section.
