Years of Expertise & Legal Experience

The Society has been in existence for over 125 years. The first meeting was held in Southampton and Mr W Renny practising in Portsmouth was elected as the first President. The first members came mostly from the cities of Portsmouth, Southampton, and Winchester. They were all men as women had not at that time entered the profession. In those days at their early meetings they discussed matters such as how to set up the society, what sort of matters they would discuss, and matters which were being considered by the national body. It has had to develop to work with many changes as the Law is not a static thing, and modes of transport, communication, even court procedures have changed dramatically. The Society has kept up to date by providing members with the tools they need to practice in today’s marketplace.
