The Eastern Suburbs Law Society (ESLS) is one of 29 regional Law Societies recognised by the Law Society of NSW.​

Our objectives are to provide CPD, social events and networking for members who live or work in Sydney's east and raise funds for charity. 
Membership is open to all legal practitioners and law graduates living or working in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney and members of the Law Society of NSW.
All other legal practitioners may apply for membership which shall be granted at the discretion of the committee.
The AGM is held in our March dinner seminar.
We hold dinner seminars in March, June and October every year.
An annual all day "Lawyers Learning for Charity" seminar is held on the last Saturday of August.
We hold an end of year social gathering for members in December. 
Complete your 10 point CPD requirement while networking with your colleagues if you attend all ESLS seminars
