One of the main functions of our policy team, along with our network of volunteers - is to analyse and respond to proposed changes in the law. We do this to help ensure that new laws or changes to existing ones are clear and will work in practice.

Part of this process involves commenting on consultations from the Scottish GovernmentScottish Parliament, UK Parliament, Scottish Law Commission and Europe.

We have produced a video which explains more about what we do  - you can watch it on our Vimeo channel.
