David Ridley and Alison Woods have joined the Aberdeen Law Project’s board.
Mr Ridley, a corporate finance associate at Womble Bond Dickinson and former student member of the project, and Alison Woods, a partner and co-head of the UK employment team at CMS, will be taking up their positions with immediate effect.
Anna Robertson, chair of the Aberdeen Law Project’s board, said: “I am delighted to welcome Alison and David to ALP’s board. Our projects working on employment issues and opportunities are thrilled to have an individual of Alison’s calibre join.
“Likewise ALP’s representation team are extremely grateful for the experience and expertise David has been able to share. It is testament to the students’ tireless volunteer work that we are able to attract such fantastic supporters.”
Mr Ridley said: “Having been heavily involved in the work of ALP during my time at university, I know the huge potential there is for the students at the project to make a real difference to those in need, whilst also learning invaluable skills and gaining great experience. I am delighted therefore to continue to support ALP and the students within it as a board member.”
Ms Woods said: “It is a pleasure to be joining the Aberdeen Law Project board. It is a small contribution on my part, to an organisation that is both benefitting the local community and helping develop the skills of students through real life experience. I have been impressed to learn of both the scope and impact of the ALP initiatives and look forward to supporting these alongside the other board members.”
