About The Bournemouth & District Law Society


The Bournemouth and District Law Society has been active in the Bournemouth and surrounding area since it was first established in 1893.


Membership of the society is open to qualified, CILEX and trainee Solicitors and the society offers a wide ranging programme of events to support our members. We have an extensive lecture programme and also a series of social events during the course of the year designed to enable solicitors to network and offer each other mutual support.

The society is run by its General Committee and led by its elected President who serves a one year term starting from the Society's Annual General Meeting, which is normally held in April of each year.

The President is supported by a Vice President and a Junior Vice President and by an Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer.

The society has an office in Bournemouth staffed by two part-time employed members of staff who run the day-to-day events of the Society.
