The Scottish Young Lawyers' Association is delighted to welcome a team from the UK Supreme Court to speak to members on what life is like working as a Judicial Assistant to the Justices of the UKSC. The Court is currently recruiting seven temporary posts, assisting the Justices by carrying out research in connection with appeals and summarising applications for permission to appeal. This event offers the opportunity to learn more about the role and to participate in a Q&A with those who have experienced life working at the Court. For more information on the vacancy please visit: http://www.hays.co.uk/jobs/supremecourt/Thejobopportunity/index.htm
Chris Maile, head of HR at the Court, will speak along with current Scottish Judicial Assistant, Caragh Nimmo , about their perspective on work in the final court of appeal. Interstingly, Caragh attended this event last year and so has an fascinating story to share about the past year and how she secured the role!
The event is kindly hosted by the Society of Solicitors of the Supreme Court in Scotland (SSC) in their lounge, which is located in SSC Building, access to which is via Parliament House, 11 Parliament Square, Edinburgh EH1 1RQ. The event will commence at 18.00 and refreshments will follow in the SSC Library on the conclusion of the talks and Q&A.
