He originally works for Ra's al Ghul in Batman Begins poisoning patients with his neuro-toxin. And in the Dark Knight Rises he is appointed judge of the court trying the rich and powerful.

Is he part of the League of Shadows or just a pawn that is used by the criminals in Gotham?

I just realised in Batman Begins the following is said:

Bruce: "He's not a member of the League of Shadows?"

Ra's al Ghul: "Oh course not! He thought our plan was to hold the city to ransom."

So clearly Scarecrow was only being used as a pawn who managed to weaponize the neuro-toxin.
