Below are recent past papers for various Law Society exams.
Candidates should be aware that our pre and post 2017 examination syllabi are different.
For that reason, questions that appear in pre-2017 papers may not be relevant to those who are sitting or sat their first exam after 1 August 2016. Likewise, those who sat their first exam prior to August 2016 should view the detail of any post August 2016 past paper questions with caution.
For clarity on what areas of law are examinable in any given subject, candidates should refer to the relevant syllabus, not the content of the exam papers. Past papers simply give an indication of question types.
This subject is examined as part of the PEAT 1 (the Diploma in Legal Practice course)
No papers have been required for this subject at the last three exam diets. Please email Martyn Robinson of the Education, Training & Qualifications department if you wish to see a copy of an older paper.
The examiner of Scottish Legal System and Legal Method has asked that this paper is not shared with candidates.
