The Law Society of Scotland is the professional body for over 11,000 Scottish solicitors. With our overarching objective of leading legal excellence, we strive to excel and to be a world-class professional body, understanding and serving the needs of our members and the public. We set and uphold standards to ensure the provision of excellent legal services and ensure the public can have confidence in Scotland’s solicitor profession.
Nearly 30% of our members work in-house making a critical contribution to the success of the companies and organisations that employ them. The Law Society of Scotland is proud to represent and support our members working in-house in Scotland and beyond.
The profile of the expanding and important community of in-house lawyers is extremely diverse. Scottish in-house lawyers can be found across every sector, performing a wide range of roles and in every corner of Scotland (and beyond). With diversity comes complexity and the needs, challenges and working environments of in-house lawyers can differ greatly from individual to individual. However, the rewards of being in-house definitely outweigh the challenges.
Our in-house members play an important role in providing advice that is closely attuned to the needs and strategies of the large number of organisations that employ them.
