    The Law Society of Scotland and the Equal Opportunities Commission Scotland jointly commissioned this study into the position of women in the legal profession in Scotland, because of the perception that women appeared to be obtaining proportionately fewer senior positions in practice or the public sector. There was very little recent empirical research into the accuracy of such perceptions.
