The Law Society of Northern Ireland (http://www.lawsoc-ni.org/) is a professional body, which has the authority to discipline, educate and regulate practising solicitors in Northern Ireland.

Under the Solicitors (Northern Ireland) Order 1976, the Law Society acts as the regulatory authority governing the education, accounts, discipline and professional conduct of solicitors in order to maintain the independence, ethical standards, professional competence and quality of services offered to the public. It carries out these functions to ensure that solicitors receive the highest level of support and that their clients receive the required standard of work.

The Solicitors' Practice Regulations 1987 were updated in June 2013.
