The Law Society of Scotland may cut employees, as it faces losing £1 million in revenue.

The professional governing body is cutting the cost of practicing as a solicitor from £665 for a “for a compulsory practising certificate” to £565. The cut in fees will cause the revenue shortfall.

Law Society staff have been asked to consider voluntary redundancies to save £250,000 in employment costs. The Society employs 120.
