Freemen and Liverymen of the City of London Solicitors' Company

An alternative to membership of The City of London Law Society for solicitors who practise, or who have previously practised, in the City of London is to apply for admission to the Freedom of the City of London Solicitors' Company, our sibling organisation.

Freemen of the Company enjoy most of the rights of members of the City of London Law Society in addition to the rights inherent to the Freedom itself. They are encouraged to attend an Admission Ceremony. They may then apply for admission to the Freedom of the City of London and thereafter for admission to the Company Livery.
