Hutchie Hub - Law

The school community enjoyed the first Hutchie Hub of 2018 this week, with FPs inspiring current pupils and staff with their experiences in the Law profession.

The Hutchie hub titled ‘Law today: Challenges and Opportunities - Guest FPs in conversation’ was open to current and former pupils, considering or involved in the legal profession.

It included a panel of guest FPs discussing their experiences through a conversation and networking event. 

The afternoon saw alumni deliver fascinating presentations, with first speaker Ashley Neilson discussing ‘Why a Law degree?’ Ashley is in his final year at the University of Glasgow and was Head Boy in 2013-14.

Following this, Emma O’Rourke, a diploma student, delivered top tips about traineeships, the experience of the diploma and how best to prepare for applications.

Rebecca Agliolo, a recent law graduate from Cambridge and Co-Founder and Managing Director of Case Crunch spoke about her fascinating work, advancing technology with the legal profession and the future of the law combined with digital advances. 

Ross Anderson, who is now a practicing advocate based in Edinburgh at Ampersand Advocates rounded off the event and spoke about his role as well as his time lecturing at Glasgow University. He delivered inspiring advice to our current pupils interested in studying law and the qualities and skills required to stand out.

The event was hosted by the Development Office and Depute Rector, Alumni and Development, Mr McDougall, thanked pupils, staff and the wider community for attending.
