349 year break with tradition

Irvine is first woman Dean of Faculty

Nicola Irvine, a partner in Glasgow law firm Russells Gibson McCaffrey, has been elected Dean of the Royal Faculty of Procurators in Glasgow – the first woman to hold the post in 349 years.

The Faculty represents the majority of legal practitioners in Greater Glasgow.

Glasgow-born Nicola said: “Some might say that in 2017 and after 349 years it was about time that the Faculty elected a woman to be Dean; as proud as I am of that, it does not detract from the privilege of being elected by my peers to represent them.” 

Donald Reid, chairman and a partner in Glasgow law practice, Mitchells Roberton, has been elected by members of the Royal Faculty as Vice Dean.
