About Law Society of Scotland

Company Overview
We are the professional body for the Scottish legal profession. Established in 1949 and financed by our members without any funding from government. Not only do we regulate and support all practising solicitors in Scotland, we also have an important duty towards the public interest. All practising solicitors are members of the Society and are required to meet our high standards. Our purpose is to lead legal excellence – this reflects our leadership role and our pursuit of excellence, taking us beyond simply being successful and respected and recognising that our members operate in and outside of Scotland.
