(Redirected to Government Legal Service article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Government Legal Service (GLS) is an umbrella group comprising around 1900 qualified lawyers working as civil servants in around thirty UK Government departments.

The Treasury Solicitor (currently Paul Jenkins) is also the Head of the Government Legal Service. GLS lawyers are mostly employed by the department in which they work, or by the Treasury Solicitor's Department (TSol). The GLS brand is used primarily for recruitment purposes and for offering training and support to GLS lawyers. The GLS Secretariat supports the work of lawyers across the GLS by providing central library services and for an intranet system, Legal Information Online Network, or LION, which can be accessed by all Government lawyers, and gives access to commercial legal databases and information and articles relevant to Government legal work.
