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.
