The Law Society of Scotland won the bid in partnership with Glasgow City Marketing Bureau (GCMB) and the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC).

The event is expected to attract 1,000 delegates including judges, lawyers and academics from across the Commonwealth, which is expected to generate more than £2 million to the local economy.

The biennial conference will take place this year from 14-18 April in Cape Town, South Africa and the Law Society of Scotland is encouraging Scottish legal professionals to attend.

Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, said: "I am delighted that the Commonwealth Law Conference is coming to Glasgow in 2015.

"Not only will it mark the return of this prestigious meeting to Europe and the UK for the first time in a decade, it will also greatly contribute to the legacy derived from the city’s hosting of the Commonwealth Games the previous year."
