The Aberdeen Law Project is absolutely thrilled to have received a tremendously kind letter from Lady Hale marking our tenth anniversary.
In our ten years of operation to date we have processed thousands of enquiries, represented hundreds of clients, changed the law, given evidence in Parliament, and educated thousands of pupils, students and prisoners on the law. We look forward to making an even bigger difference over the Project’s next ten years.
Lady Hale, President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, said: “I have read about your work and many achievements with interest. What you have achieved in improving access to justice in Scotland through the provision of advice, representation and education is really very impressive.
“That yours is a project founded, led and operated by students, who have sustained and developed it over ten years is even more remarkable.”
Martyna Proczek, Student Director, said: “We couldn’t believe it when Ryan told us he’d been speaking to Lady Hale and had a letter for us to mark our tenth birthday.
“The student team and our supervisors work so hard for the people of North Scotland. To see this work described by Lady Hale as “exemplary” is just utterly amazing; we’re on cloud nine!”
