The Law Society, Chancery Lane, London WC2, by Lewis Vulliamy (1791-1871). 1828-32. The Law Society was founded as the Law Institute, a "voluntary organisation of solicitors" (Weinreb et al. 476), in 1825. Vulliamy's impressive neo-classical building is very much of its time, and certainly supports the idea that he was a "thoroughly professional" architect (Allinson 178).
