The Working Party on Historical Archive is delighted to launch the Oral History Project (the “Project”) in 2020 where very senior and significant members of the Law Society, including members who have been admitted to the Law Society's Roll of Honour, Past Presidents and very senior members, would be interviewed to provide unique insights into their memories, lives and professional careers.

Below is a list of those interviews that have been conducted under the Project (in alphabetical order of the family names of the interviewees). The Working Party takes this opportunity to express gratitude towards the interviewees for sparing their invaluable time to share with us their stories. 

The interviews were conducted in the language of the preference of the interviewees and interviewers.

*Unless otherwise specified, all interviews were recorded in video format. Intellectual property of all interview recordings are vested in the Law Society, and visitors are reminded not to reproduce, circulate and/or by any means exploit the content of the recordings in any format unless with prior consent in writing from the Law Society.
