Terms of Reference

The Legal Compliance Association is a service line within the Wilmington Group of companies but has a separate advisory Board (See About The Board). The Wilmington Group publishes Managing Partner and Solicitors Journal and has a decade of experience in producing law firm compliance conferences, delivering thought leadership in the market. Compliance Week and International Compliance Training are also member companies.

The LCA’s unique position within the Wilmington Group enables us to offer you a balanced mix of compliance content and information along with cross-sector insight.

The LCA does not provide legal advice to its members but acts as a facilitator, connecting members to other members and experts who can help with compliance issues and with locating relevant information.
