This charitable fund was established in 1974, independent and in close collaboration with The Law Society (TLS), making grant awards to a wide range of organisations with a view to further law and justice. The Charity supports organisations whose work is related to the law and legal profession; and whose activities would likely benefit from funds made available on behalf of solicitors.
