A forum for a resilient, relevant & accessible
legal sector in Wales
The Law Council
The Commission on Justice in Wales (Thomas Commission) delivered a landmark report, Justice in Wales for the People of Wales, in October 2019 with a comprehensive set of recommendations setting a future vision for justice in Wales.
It is essential we have a vibrant legal sector in Wales to ensure all people, businesses and communities have easy access to the advice they need when they need it, and to support our vision for a better justice system for the people of Wales.
The Law Council for Wales has been established to promote legal education and training and awareness in Welsh Law, the use of legal technology and innovation, and support the economic development and sustainability of the legal sector in Wales.
The Law Council is a forum by which the whole Welsh legal community can agree priorities, establish working groups, and collaborate with each other – and with Welsh Government – to support the growth of the legal sector and further the interests of the law.
“I am delighted that steps have been taken to set up the Law Council, to bring together the legal sector to help shape legal education and training and the future of the legal professions in Wales and promote the growing body of Welsh law.”
Lord Lloyd-Jones, former Justice of the UK Supreme Court & President of the Law Council of Wales.
