About the Law Society of Scotland

The Law Society of Scotland is the professional body for Scottish solicitors.  We were established in 1949 and are financed by our members without any funding from government.

Not only do we regulate and represent all practising solicitors in Scotland but we have an important duty towards the public interest.  All practising solicitors are members of the Society and are required to meet our high standards.

To find out more, please visit an A to Z of what we do.

Our aim is to lead and support a successful and respected Scottish legal profession.

This aim is underpinned by five objectives.

  • Excellent solicitor professionalism and reputation
  • Our members are trusted advisers of choice
  • Our members are economically active and sustainable
  • The Society is the professional body and regulator of choice
  • The Society is a high performing organisation
