Our first Admissions Ceremony of the year took place at the Signet Library in Edinburgh this morning (15 March) with 58 new solicitors being admitted to the profession.

Lady Rae spoke at the ceremony, which marks the culmination of years of hard work and the beginning of an exciting career in law for Scotland’s newest solicitors.

At the ceremony, President of the Law Society, Alison Atack said, “It is a great privilege for me to congratulate you on becoming solicitors. In this room, full of talented women and men, there is the potential to move mountains.

“The very act of becoming a solicitor and a member of our wonderful Scottish legal profession, is something from which you can take great satisfaction. I have been qualified for many years and still remind myself that our legal education and qualification in Scots law, is highly sought after around the world.”

Lorna Jack, Chief Executive of the Law Society also gave an address and spoke about the services the Law Society offers for new lawyers and the many ways they can get involved with the work of the Society. Speaking at the event, she said, “We are here to support you, your career development and your futures and regulation is a core and key part of what we do.  It is critical that you and your colleagues have clear and robust rules to guide you in the course of your roles, but there is so much more on offer to help you to not just do your jobs, but to excel in your roles, as fulfilled and happy individuals.”
