Mr Mackenzie said: “As a government lawyer, on secondment to manage the centre, I welcome the opportunity to work with the IBA Public Law Committee and to engage in discussions and activities relating to administrative and constitutional law with practitioners from around the world. The committee is seeking to expand its horizons, so I am keen to assist with work on increasing engagement with public lawyers.”
Brandon Malone, chairman of the board of the centre, added: “The board congratulates Andrew on his appointment. It is clear that one of the great strengths of the IBA is its global reach and Andrew’s key roles within the organisation ensure Scotland and the Scottish Arbitration Centre have a strong voice within the international legal community.”
