(541)  DISCIPLINING LAWYERS

 

The Legal Profession and Legal Aid (Scotland) Bill, which will establish the Scottish Legal Complaints Commission and make provision as regards complaints against members of the legal profession in Scotland (see previously No 530) was introduced in the Scottish Parliament by the Justice Minister on 1 March 2006.  The Bill, which will now progress through the Justice 2 Committee, also makes provision in connection with the administration of the Scottish Legal Aid Fund, including the establishment of a register of advisers in connection with the advice and assistance scheme.
