Legal Profession and Legal Aid (Scotland) Act (asp 5) which received Royal Assent on 19 January 2007

Section 25: Failure to comply with recommendation

54.Section 25 provides an enforcement mechanism for cases in which the Commission directs a professional body to comply with a direction under section 24(6), but the professional body still does not do so. This section permits the Commission in such circumstances to apply to the Court of Session by petition for the court to order the professional body to comply with the relevant recommendation. This would permit a fine or other sanctions to be imposed by the court if the professional body then failed to comply with the court’s order.
