Locum Register

In response to requests for information and a perceived need, the Royal Faculty of Procurators in Glasgow has set up a Register of Locum Solicitors.

In order to register as a locum please complete the form to be listed as a locum here.  The cost for listing in the register will be an annual charge for £50 + VAT for members and £95 + VAT for non-members, payable in advance of listing. Please call the library to make a payment. 

Details of locum practitioners who have requested to be listed are given below. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. / the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for relevant contact details. 

Locum Practitioners may be:

  • Solicitors with a full practising certificate
  • Solicitors without a current practising certificate who are retained on the roll. Such employees must not hold themselves out or be held out to be working as 'solicitors'.
  • Graduates who have completed their traineeship but who have not found employment as a solicitor, perhaps working as a paralegal.

Locums may take up work in any number of flexible ways, by agreement with the employer, for example:

  • As short-term employees, or on a self-employment basis, working for a Scottish firm of solicitors (Professional Indemnity and Client Protection Fund paid by employer). Cost of the practising certificate is a matter for negotiation. 
  • As consultants (employees for whom the Professional Indemnity and Client Protection Fund contributions as paid by the firm). Cost of the practising certificate is a matter for negotiation.
  • As self-employed 'career locums', effectively sole practitioners working on their own Professional Indemnity and Client Protection Fund contributions. Own practising certificate required and minimum three years post-qualification experience. This will be a necessary option where the employer is an organisation whose Professional Indemnity and Client Protection cover does not cover the solicitor.
