Solicitors Ken Dalling and Amanda Millar have been elected as the newest members of the Law Society of Scotland’s board.

A committee of the Society's Council, the board supports the office bearers and the Council in overseeing decisions on operational matters and holding management to account. Both the new board members are elected members of the Council.

Founding partner of his Stirling based firm, Ken Dalling joined Council in 2010 and sits on the Society’s Client Protection subcommittee, the Professional Practice Committee and Senior Solicitor Advocate Accreditation Committee.

Amanda Millar, a partner at McCash & Hunter in Perth, has also been on Council since 2010. She convenes the Professional Practice (Rules & Waivers) Subcommittee and sits on the Client Protection Subcommittee and Audit Committee.

Both will take up their new positions as of the next board meeting on 10 July. The board comprises the Society’s office bearers, its chief executive, five solicitor members elected from Council and one observer member.

Lorna Jack, chief executive of the Society, commented: “I’m delighted to welcome Ken and Amanda to the board.

“They bring a fresh and diverse range of skills and experiences to the board table and I look forward to working closely with them in the delivery of our strategy. Ken and Amanda will play a crucial role as we drive towards becoming a world class organisation leading a highly respected legal profession.”
