The Law Society of Scotland is reviewing standards for Scottish solicitors. Having clear and understandable standards is good for both solicitors and clients. It lets the client know what standards to expect and lets the profession know what is expected of them.
There are standards of service, which are about the service provided by a solicitor and/or the solicitor firm and there are standards of conduct, which are about the behaviour of individual solicitors. The aim is to have one set of standards that is clear and open to all.
Filling in the on-line questionnaire will give you the opportunity to have your say on standards for the solicitor profession. It should only take about 10 minutes to complete.
