Welcome to the website of the Scottish Legal Action Group.

We aim to increase understanding of the law and legal services, and work to improve the legal system for the benefit of those people in Scotland who are economically, socially or otherwise disadvantaged. Join us today to become part of our work.

For decades, the Group has played an important role in Scottish civic society in campaigning for law reform and increased access to justice. It publishes a monthly Journal, responds to consultations, holds events and works along with other organisations in support of its objectives.

Proposals for reform of welfare law, legal aid, bankruptcy, criminal procedure, the civil court structure, and employment law are all current examples of changes which will impact on the lives of disadvantaged people and affect their ability to obtain access to justice. The Group’s work to make the law work better on their behalf is as important now as it ever has been and we need your help.
