To ask the Scottish Government, further to its news release of 25 April 2017, Regulating the legal profession, what the process was for the selection of the legal services review panel.
Answered by: Annabelle Ewing 9 May 2017
No formal selection process is in place. A pool of potential candidates with a broad range of experience and knowledge of regulatory schemes and the legal services sector was identified. A balanced mix of panel members was compiled from within that pool.
