The Law Society of Scotland has published its annual strategy, citing support, recovery, and public confidence in the rule of law as priorities for the year ahead.
Amanda Millar, President of the Law Society of Scotland, said:
The events of this year could not have been realistically predicted. The impact of the public health crisis and necessary restrictions on society have been enormous. Against that backdrop it would be easy to focus on immediate actions rather than strategy.
However, with the pace of digital change accelerating due to the increase in working from home and clear challenges ahead as the legal services market and the wider economy seeks to recover the ground lost, planning has never been more important. Our strategy published today sets out our priorities for the next two years alongside an annual plan showing key objectives for 2020/21.
