The Society confirmed its intentions to move from the B-listed complex to new Edinburgh offices at Atria One on Morrison Syreey in May this year. The new premises will offer more modern and eco-efficient surroundings for staff and visitors.

Foutry-seven years

Chief executive Lorna Jack said of the move: The Law Society has seen an enormous amount of change during its 47 years at Drumsheugh Gardens. Since we moved from North Bank Street in 1969, there have been 43 Law Society presidents, four chief executives and our membership has more than tripled, from 3,232 practising Scottish solicitors to over 11,300.'

End of an era

'This is the end of an era but also the start of a really exciting time. The next 12 months will mark one of the most significant periods of change in the Law Society’s proud 66-year history.' Source: Scottish Legal
