JUSTICE, the leading charity for law reform and human rights across the UK, are looking for a Chair and Vice-Chair to lead their Scottish branch.
Since launching in 2012, JUSTICE Scotland has become the leading voice on justice and rule of law issues in Scotland, as well as contributing to the organisation’s UK-wide work. Operating largely as a volunteer group of leading lawyers, with support from both Scotland and London-based staff, JUSTICE Scotland is regularly consulted by public bodies; MSPs; legal bodies and the government for our views and contribute to consultations and parliamentary business. JUSTICE Scotland publishes reports based on research and evidence found through Working Parties, and runs events for the legal sector.
JUSTICE are looking for two individuals to take on the roles of Chair and Vice-Chair, as Shelagh McCall QC and Catherine Smith QC step down from their roles. The JUSTICE Scotland Chair acts as a spokesperson and key promoter for JUSTICE Scotland, supporting not just the legal work but the charity’s wider fundraising work as well. With strong leadership and communication skills, these roles will provide input and advice to help guide the direction of JUSTICE Scotland’s work.
JUSTICE are hugely grateful to Shelagh McCall QC and Catherine Smith QC for their hard work and dedication to JUSTICE Scotland.
The positions are voluntary.
