Top musical talent from across Scotland’s legal profession have signed up to take part in the first ’LexFactor’ battle of the bands.

Six bands from some of Scotland’s best-known law firms, the Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates, will take to the stage to compete for the inaugural LexFactor trophy and help raise vital funds for the Lawscot Foundation which supports young people from less-advantaged backgrounds throughout their legal education.

Law Society of Scotland Chief Executive Lorna Jack and President John Mulholland will be performing at the event at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange on Thursday, 12 March 2020.

Lorna Jack said: “There is so much talent in the legal profession and this will be another opportunity for them to shine – although in a very different way from usual!

“We have had a fantastic response to our idea of hosting Lex Factor and now have a terrific line up for the night. Some of the bands taking part have been formed specifically for the competition, including our own Bail’her’ Swift, while others have played together before.

“I’m delighted to say we also have a stellar line-up of judges - to be revealed very soon – and I’m very grateful to our sponsors Locktons and Titlesolv whose support has made the event possible. It’s going to be a great night and I’d encourage everyone to come along to cheer on their friends and colleagues on the night – and help us raise funds for a very worthy cause.”

The LexFactor line up:

The Argyll Cycle - Gilson Gray LLP, Ferguson & Co, HRC Recruitment and Scottish Ambulance Service

A Flock of Legals - Shepherd and Wedderburn LLP

The Submissions – Edinburgh Bar Association

The Paroling Stones - BTO Solicitors LLP, DWF and Faculty of Advocates
