Membership benefits

Membership card and membership discounts

Members of the Cardiff & District Law Society receive a Membership Card, which entitles them to benefits/discounts from various local businesses. Find out more

Regular social events

As well as our busy President's Annual Dinner in April / May each year, the Society organises regular smaller social events. Events include regular socials and networking evenings to take advantage of leading discounts at leading Cardiff bars and restaurants (and to connect members), organising the annual Music / Concert Racenight at the Chepstow Racecourse; and (supporting the Confederation of South Wales Law Societies) a fabulous “Summer Soiree”. In the past 12 months we have also organised very well-attended charity quiz nights, a Children's Christmas Party in December and we are just about to launch our first charity golf event. See our Events page for more!

Cheaper CPD points

Membership entitles members to free CPD courses run by the Cardiff & District Law Society and 25% off courses run by the Confederation of South Wales Law Societies. Find out more

Keep up-to-date

All members receive Legal News, which covers legal issues and social events. Find out more

Contact with the local judiciary

There is contact and liaison between the local Courts and the Cardiff & District Law Society.

Working committees, working for your interests

The Society has a number of working committees comprised of Council members and co-opted members drawn from the membership. This allows members to assist in forming policies and dealing with issues that affect the profession.

Have your say

The Cardiff & District Law Society is the largest local Law Society in Wales, whose views are heard in Chancery Lane. You could add your voice for notice to be taken nationally.

Looking to the future

There is regular contact and liaison with the local Junior Lawyers Division which is represented at the Cardiff & District Law Society’s monthly Council meetings.

Remember, benefits are subject to presentation of a valid Membership Card and only those individuals registered as members on the database for Cardiff & District Law Society are entitled to use the Membership Card – So don’t delay, join today!

Who to contact

Should you have any general queries regarding membership benefits or are aware of any businesses that may be interested in providing benefits to members, please notify the Membership Secretary.
