A further MSP contact…

On the advice of the Scottish Young Laywers’ Association, we contacted Jenny Marra MSP.  She is the Labour spokesperson on Legal Affairs and the deputy convener of the Justice committee.  She has a strong interest in legal training.

I spoke to her on the phone and she has some ideas about taking the issue forward.  I hope to meet up with her next week.

So far all our contacts and discussion with MSPs has been in the context of education, so it is helpful to have made a contact on the legal affairs side of things.  I certainly feel that this is much more an ‘access to the professions’ issue, rather than an ‘access to education’ issue.
