The Law Society of Scotland – Lay Members

Lay Members on Council of the Law Society of Scotland
3 year term, 9 meetings per year

The Law Society of Scotland promotes excellence across the solicitor profession through representation, support and regulation of its members. We also help to shape the law for the benefit of both the public and the profession. The Society is an independent body and is funded by its solicitor members.

Overall responsibility for strategy and policy lies with the Society’s ruling Council. The Council is mixture of elected solicitor members from different geographical constituencies, co-opted solicitor members representing practitioners outwith private practice and nine lay members.

Lay members make an important contribution to the work of the Society’s Council bringing knowledge and expertise from a wide-range of backgrounds including charities and institutions, business organisations, and other professional bodies – all of which are representative of the client community.
