President's message

Welcome to the Kent Law Society's website. Whether you are looking for legal help, or you are a law student, or a solicitor or paralegal, I hope you will find the contacts and information you need here. To those seeking legal help, I would like to say that our county has a wealth of legal expertise and infrastructure to meet all needs, and the Society's skilled members are on your doorstep. Our Find a Kent Lawyer section will put you in touch with the help you are seeking.To law students, the Society offers practical training, networking, social interaction, and support in job-seeking. See particularly our Careers in the Law section, and consider becoming a student member of the Society. Our Society was formed to provide fellowship, support and championship for solicitors. Our training courses for members and non-members offer the best value around for CPD, and the membership fee is quickly paid for through course fee discounts for members. Our social events provide congenial company and mental stimulation, and the contacts and resources of the Society are aimed to help both the successful practitioner and the struggling one.

Nick Fairweather, President
