Law Society of Northern Ireland Statement

The Law Society of Northern Ireland notes with concern the Prime Minister’s recent comments criticising lawyers bringing legal challenges against the Government. 

Challenges of this kind are a vital part of our legal system and ensure that the Government are acting within the law. 

Lawyers are duty bound to represent their clients to the best of their ability and this is never more important than when supporting vulnerable clients to protect their rights.

The Law Society of Northern Ireland supports the call from our colleagues in the rest of the United Kingdom for the Prime Minister to stop attacking lawyers for doing their jobs.
