'I am very pleased that the legal profession in Scotland is continuing to grow and that so many young people see their future in law. The latest statistics are a good indicator of the improving health of the profession and that despite the difficulties experienced by many as a result of the downturn, we are making progress as the economy recovers.The data shows that increasing numbers of women are entering the profession, with 69% of all female solicitors currently under 45 years old compared to 43% of all male solicitors. The overall gender split shows that 49% of the profession are women and 51% are men, but this shifts when you look at the split for the under-45s, 61% women and 39% men.
Solicitors play a crucial role in our society and our economy, helping thousands of people and businesses with a wide spectrum of legal issues, from providing advice on buying or selling your home and assistance with writing a will that ensures loved ones are protected, to representing people in court and advising clients involved in multi-million pound contracts for global companies.'
