Dean hails IBA appointment
THE Faculty has welcomed the appointment of Andrew Mackenzie, Chief Executive of the Scottish Arbitration Centre, as Co-Chair of the International Bar Association’s Access to Justice and Legal Aid Committee.
The committee takes information from around the world on barriers to access to justice in different jurisdictions, and on ways in which these barriers are overcome.
Gordon Jackson, QC, Dean of the Faculty, said: “The Faculty very much welcomes this appointment. It is so important for Scotland that it should have a voice on influential, international bodies such as the IBA, and in areas as vital as access to justice and legal aid.
“We are confident that Andrew Mackenzie has all the attributes to ensure that his is a strong voice, and one which is heard and respected. We wish him well.”
