The Scottish Government's mygov.scot website is the central source of information about public services in Scotland and how to access them.
The 'Legal advice and legal aid' section explains about all the options to consider for legal help - not just legal aid.
This includes information about getting free help with legal problems, finding a solicitor and applying for legal aid.
