CPD Training, Support, News & Social Events



We offer,

  • Social events and networking opportunities
  • A chance to have a say in the way our profession runs
  • Legal education programme with top-class speakers
  • Discounted CPD events run by the School of Law at Hertfordshire University – ‘the most innovative law school in the country’
  • Free quarterly magazine
  • Discounted associate membership for unadmitted staff

The HLS is your voice, both locally and nationally. The HLS council meets quarterly and is attended by the area representative of the national Law Society. In addition, we have a council member who also sits on the council of the national Law Society. This provides a channel between the national and local Law Society and you the individual solicitor.

Our network is you, the solicitors of Hertfordshire. The HLS offers you the opportunity to meet and get to know other solicitors, both professionally and socially, be it by attending one of our many CPD lectures and seminars or by attending our annual dinner, area suppers and other events, including walks and quiz nights.
