The Society of Scottish Lawyers in London (SSLL) was founded in October 1987, in response to the growing numbers of Scots lawyers moving south to jobs in London, predominantly in the major City law firms. Its purpose is to enable Scots lawyers in London to make and maintain contact with one another through social and other events. The Society organises a number of events for its members throughout the year, including the perhaps infamous SSLL Burns Supper – the largest held within the City of London with around 400 people attending.

Under the club's first constitution, membership was limited to lawyers (advocates or solicitors) admitted to practice in Scotland and who have a residence or place of business in London. In 1989, the membership criteria were relaxed to admit Scots who are English lawyers or Scots who are lawyers admitted to other jurisdictions. The Society now has a diverse membership.
