The Law Council is a federal organisation representing approximately 60,000 Australian legal professionals through its constituent member Bar Associations and Law Societies (known as ‘Constituent Bodies’).
There are 17 Constituent Bodies including the Large Law Firm Group.
The Directors govern the Law Council, and meet quarterly to set objectives, policy, and priorities for the Council. The Directors are selected by representation of the Constituent Bodies. Between meetings of Directors, policy and governance responsibility for the Law Council is exercised by the Elected Executive, led by the President.
