Couple searching online for a Scottish solicitor

What the Society can do for you

Find a solicitor

The Law Society cannot provide legal advice, but we can help you find a solicitor. You can search by the type of work you need carried out or search for a solicitor close to where you live. We can also trace any law firm in Scotland past and present. For instance, you might be looking for legal files for a firm that has closed or moved.

Solicitor standards

The Law Society is also responsible for regulating Scottish solicitors and setting standards. You can find out more about what consumer protections are available and and how legal fees should be calculated.

Making a complaint

Occasionally, clients feel that their solicitor has not provided a service to the standards set out above. This section outlines how you can go about making a complaint against a solicitor. 

Law reform consultations and Bills

We are committed to shaping the law for the benefit of all, commenting on Bills going through the legislative process and government consultations (Scottish, UK and European).

Our standards

We will always try to help you with your enquiries. You can read more about our service standards in the About us section.
