In-house Lawyers' Committee
In 2015 the Society set up the In-house Lawyers' Committee (ILC) as a committee sitting with in the Society's governance. The ILC continues the work of the In-House Lawyers' Group (ILG), which was established in 1973 as a non-regulatory, independent committee of the Society.
The ILC represents, supports and promotes the interests and status of our members working in-house in Scotland and beyond.

Solicitor with the Church of Scotland
I graduated from Glasgow University and came to Edinburgh to finish my traineeship. On qualifying I worked for a short while in rural property, which fitted my family background as I spent several years of my childhood on a farm.
I then spent a few years working in Aberdeen as a commercial property lawyer before returning to Edinburgh and rural property work at Murray Beith Murray, where I acted for estate owners in a huge variety of work, including agricultural matters and renewable energy projects.
Immediately prior to moving in-house, I worked for a firm in Fife in relation to a new rural property department for them. I have been with the Church of Scotland Law Department since June 2012, where I specialise in conveyancing work but also get involved in any other queries that come to the Law Department and make use of my rural and agricultural knowledge when the need arises.
