New Lord Justice Clerk installed

The Right Hon. Lady Dorrian has been installed as the new Lord Justice Clerk and President of the Second Division of the Court of Session.

“As Lord Justice Clerk, Lady Dorrian becomes the most senior woman in Scottish legal history,” said Lord Carloway, the Lord President, during the ceremony in Parliament House. “On the civil side, she brings her many talents to preside over the Second Division and in crime to play a central role in developing the law in and procedure of the High Court of Justiciary. Her work chairing the Sentencing Council will be of particular importance.”

“I am sure that all those on the Bench today and those who were not able to join us will all be able to work together in the spirit of true co-operation which is required in order to maintain the high standards of the Scottish Bench and to improve those areas which still require attention,” he added.

In response, Lady Dorrian commented, “It is a great honour to be the first woman, the first of many I have no doubt, to be appointed to this great office.”
