Equality and Diversity

Here at the Law Society, we strive to look for people across both our staff roles and committees who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and life experience, and who have a passion and commitment to further all of our work for our members and the public.

During our recruitment process, all candidates are assessed against the same criteria and every effort is made to give them an equal opportunity, regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, gender re-assignment, marital or family status, race, nationality, ethic origin, disability, religion or belief, age or membership/non membership of a trade union.

We are particularly looking to broaden the interests, diversity and character of our committees to ensure our work continues to reflect Scotland’s legal profession and Scottish society.

We welcome applications from individuals whose lives or professional experience can make a valuable contribution to our work. We would especially welcome applications from people who belong to groups currently under-represented on our committees, including disabled people, LGBT+ people, young people, and Black and ethnic minority people.
