Qualified solicitors have the option of entering a partnership, starting their own firm, applying to join the judiciary, or qualify as a Solicitor Advocate. The Law Society of Scotland runs courses for members who are entering a partnership/starting their own firm (Practice Management Course) and members seeking accreditation as a Solicitor Advocate (Rights of Audience). Both these courses are required to be completed with the Law Society. Members interested in joining the judiciary can learn about the process and how to stand out from the crowd in our Applying for Judicial and Public Appointments course. Further details are available by clicking on the links below.
We additionally run a number of essential skills and certification courses to help you upskill and further your career prospects. Places on these courses are limited, but we will continue to add new dates throughout the year. Please sign up for CPD newsletter if you’d like to be notified of the new course dates.
