    The legal sector - A case for Scotland.

    There are over 1,200 law firms in Scotland, employing over 12,600 qualified lawyers, and each year around 3,000 people graduate from Scottish colleges and universities, full of enthusiasm and hungry for work - further boosting this vibrant sector.

    Since the emergence of the LPO market in the late 1990's the industry has grown rapidly andmatured. Firms who initially outsourced high volume, process orientated work now recognize the opportunity to develop a multi-shoring approach with operations in multiple locations.

    Scotland has 12 universities offering degree courses in law, which produces over 2800 law graduates each year. In addition 300 people qualify through Scottish colleges,which means that we have over three thousand legal graduates bolstering this vibrant sector annually. This, coupled with our dynamic BPO workforce makes Scotland the ideal location for an LPO business to succeed.

    The Scottish legal workforce.

    The quality of our workforce is internationally recognized as being one of the best trained, most reliable and cost-effective labor forces in the world. With its world-renowned education system and its high ratio of graduates per capita, Scotland surpasses most countries in Europe of comparable size.

    Labor market regulations in the UK, including working hours, are the most flexible in Europe, and staffing costs are highly competitive with salaries - including indirect social wage costs such as employer's national insurance - among the lowest in Europe.

    In Scotland business and political environment is conducive to both entrepreneurship and growth. Companies that have invested in Scotland have, in turn, enjoyed a wide range of financial support and incentives.
