Register for Criminal Legal Assistance


Solicitors and firms who wish to provide Criminal Legal Assistance must follow our Code of Practice. Please read this before completing the registration process.

Register a firm

Any firm that wants to be listed on the Criminal Legal Assistance Register must be registered with the Law Society of Scotland as a practice unit.

If this is the case please complete the CLAR/F form and email it to criminalregister@slab.org.uk.

If you wish to change the compliance partner of your firm in the future, please have the partner who is assuming this role complete the CLAR/CP form and email it to criminalregister@slab.org.uk

 

Solicitor registration

If you work for a firm that is already registered to provide Criminal Legal Assistance then please complete the CLAR/S form and email it to criminalregister@slab.org.uk along with a copy of your current practising certificate.

We will contact you once we have reviewed your application and let you know if it has been approved.
