Law Society pays tribute to Alistair C. Clark

29 January 2015 | tagged News release

The Law Society of Scotland has paid tribute to past president, Alistair C. Clark who passed away earlier this week.

The current president of the Law Society, Alistair Morris, said: "Alistair was an exceptional president and did a wonderful job of representing Scottish solicitors. We were sad to hear the news of his death and extend our condolences to Alistair’s wife Evelyn and her family at this difficult time.

“Alistair was fiercely proud to be an ambassador for the Scottish solicitors and he was determined to make others aware of the value of the legal profession. He was certain that Scots lawyers would always be prepared to be there for clients as independent advisers and took steps to ensure regulation of the profession meant consumer trust and client protection.”

Alistair C. Clark served as President of the Law Society between 1989 and 1990.
