Liverpool Law

Liverpool Law is the monthly magazine for members of the Society.  It has a circulation of 2500 and goes to members, local MPs, the national Law Society, other local Law Societies in England and Wales and other professional membership organisations. 

The magazine is available to download below as a PDF or to view in a magazine reader (as of November 2015). 

Members are welcome to submit articles.  There is a shortage of news from members outside of Liverpool and the Editor would welcome articles from firms in Southport, St Helens, Wirral, Halton, Sefton & other areas in North West.  Liverpool Law carries a variety of articles from legal matters, news on Movers & Shakers from the Merseyside and North West region and events for the local legal profession.  

Please send articles with photos (preferably good quality, high resolution) and caption for consideration by the Editor, Peter Holland, at editor@liverpoollawsociety.org.uk
