In order to ensure that only SLAS members can properly claim our CPD we have advised the  Law Society of Scotland of our programme and for the purposes of verification we have asked them to check with us that any solicitor claiming our CPD is indeed a current and paid up SLAS member. The Law Society has confirmed with us that only such members will be able to claim our CPD.
