The Legal Defence Union (LDU) exists for the specific purpose of promoting and protecting the welfare of solicitors in Scotland.

It is committed to protecting the interests of all solicitors in Scotland, whether engaged in court, conveyancing or commercial work, in town or country, and in all areas of activity.

Lawyers have always prided themselves on their commitment to helping clients from all levels of society, whatever their circumstances or their problems. The Legal Profession has been perhaps a little slow in providing an independent advice agency for its own members. Lawyers sometimes need lawyers! It is good professionalism to take advice. We are committed to the idea of prompt, friendly, confidential and skilled advice to all solicitors in Scotland.
