Learning and development network

The WS Society supports learning and development in the Scottish legal profession.


The WS Society co-founded the independent learning and development forum LEADS (Legal Learning and Development Scotland). The aim of LEADS is to share knowledge on all legal training and professional development issues. LEADS members include leading law firms, in-house training providers, LL.B and PEAT 2 universities, legal institutions and bodies, HR professionals and commercial training providers.


LEADS has adopted four specific objectives:

  • To act as a think-tank and pressure group on all training and professional development issues.
  • To provide networking opportunities.
  • To enable knowledge sharing.
  • To support learning and development.


The group is open to all and meets on a quarterly basis. For information on how to join the next meeting please contact Anna Bennett WS or visit LEADS on LinkedIn.
