Hugh Olson appointed director of training and education at Faculty
Hugh Olson has been appointed director of training and education for the Faculty of Advocates.
Mr Olson takes over from Neil Mackenzie QC.
Mr Olson is the seventh director since the Faculty established the role in 1995. Of the seven directors, four have been members of Arnot Manderson – Sheriff Kenneth Campbell QC, Sheriff Pino di Emidio, Mr Mackenzie and now Mr Olson.
Mr Olson said: “Neil has re-established the Faculty’s Training and Education Programme on firm foundations following the disruption caused by the Covid pandemic.
“The disruption meant that Neil had to come up with innovative ways of delivering the programme on-line. I hope that because of Neil’s efforts I will have the opportunity to build upon Neil’s success in delivering high quality training for members and devils.”
