Edinburgh Law School honours Elaine Tyre on 10th anniversary of law clinic
Proposals for further expansion of pro bono services were highlighted at the event along with an announcement that the centre had been shortlisted for the Access to Justice Award at the forthcoming Law Works and Attorney–General Student Pro Bono Awards.
Then followed the dedication to Elaine Tyre, which culminated in the unveiling of a plaque to her memory and the renaming of the centre room, the Elaine Tyre Room.
Her husband, Lord Tyre, a Senator of the College of Justice, who is also patron of the centre, along with their children, Kirsty Tyre, Catriona Tyre and Euan Tyre, joined those gathered who were there to pay tribute to her many achievements.
“She did not stop there, but remained in touch with hundreds of former students. Her door was always open.”
