Standing Junior Counsel to the Scottish Government

The Lord Advocate is looking to appoint nine Standing Junior Counsel to act on behalf of the Scottish Government (which for this purpose includes office holders in the Scottish Administration) to fill vacancies which have arisen in the summer of 2011.

Applications are invited from both members of the Faculty of Advocates and from members of the Society of Solicitor Advocates. The Lord Advocate envisages that in total there should continue to be 20 Standing Junior Counsel including First and Second Standing Junior Counsel.

These appointments, which will initially be for a period of three years, are open to members of the Faculty of Advocates or Solicitor Advocates with not less than four years’ experience of legal practice in Scotland, whether as an advocate or as a solicitor.

The Scottish Government will ordinarily instruct as junior counsel only those counsel who have been appointed by the Lord Advocate to be Standing Junior Counsel.

Further information on these appointments and advice on how to apply can be obtained from Julie Ross, Scottish Government Legal Directorate, G-B(N), Victoria Quay, Edinburgh. Tel 0131 244 1657 or email Julie.ross@scotland.gsi.gov.uk

The closing date for applications has been extended to 12 noon on 20 October 2011.
