These are exciting and challenging times for the Labour Party, with a new Leadership team confronting a Conservative Government.
The Society of Labour Lawyers is committed to working with the Party by providing specialist advice on the unjust and iniquitous proposals from the Conservatives in power and by campaigning for policies and a legal framework which will produce a fairer and more equal society for all.Kate O’Rourke, Chair, Society of Labour Lawyers
Over the next Parliament, Labour must rigorously scrutinise the Tory Government’s policies
whilst advocating the importance of a fair and functioning Justice system.
The Society of Labour Lawyers is an incredibly valuable organisation as a resource of legal expertise utilised across the policy agenda and the party’s eyes and ears from the frontline of the legal system.
The Society of Labour Lawyers has a long tradition of debate and campaigning on policy, politics and legal issues. I look forward to working with them for a fairer and more equal Britain.Jeremy Corbyn MP Leader of the Labour Party
