Good Morning,


Thank you for contacting the Law Society of Scotland.


As the Law Society of Scotland are not a public body we are not required
to provide data in response to Freedom of Information requests.


Although we try to be transparent and helpful we don’t actually have the
information you have requested. 


For the question in terms of legislation, you may wish to contact a
Scottish solicitor who can guide you on this.  Law literature may also
help and it may be worth contacting the National Library of Scotland to
find out if they hold any information.


Yours Sincerely,



Steven Gilluley

Public Communication Executive
