REGULATIONS

Solicitor advocates are regulated by the Law Society of Scotland.

Solicitor advocates have to comply with the general standards expected of all solicitors in relation to the quality of service provided and the standard of conduct shown. This includes important ethical practices such as confidentiality, honesty and integrity.

Solicitor advocates also have to comply with rules and codes of conduct specifically relating to solicitor advocates.

These cover practical issues, such as the requirements for obtaining rights of audience in the civil and criminal courts, and the order of precedence, instructions and representation. They also cover questions of conduct, setting out the special duties that apply to the role of solicitor advocate.
