The Law Society of Scotland

The Law Society of Scotland is the governing body for Scottish solicitors. It was established by the Legal Aid & Solicitors (Scotland) Act in 1949. The main aims of the Society are set out in the Solicitors (Scotland) Act 1980. In essence, the Society promotes the interests of the solicitors' profession in Scotland and the interests of the public in relation to the profession.

All practising solicitors in Scotland must be members of the Society and must hold a current Practising Certificate which is issued by the Society.
