Solicitors in the Supreme Courts of Scotland (Amendment) Act 2021

The Act

3.The overall objective of the Act is to ensure that the constitution of the Society of Solicitors in the Supreme Courts of Scotland (referred to in these notes as “the SSC Society”) and the SSC Society’s associated powers of administration reflect changed social conditions in the legal profession and in Scottish society since 1979. The President and Council of the SSC Society sought to do this by amending the relevant existing legislation (which is the Solicitors in the Supreme Courts of Scotland Act 1871, as amended in 1979).
