Having organised legal work experience in a property law firm, she is confident in her abilities to build a rapport with professionals. Evana also has a keen interest in Mooting, and in March 2017 she mooted before Lord Hodge at the Supreme Court. In addition to her legal studies, she enjoys ballet and boxing"

Matthew Simpson

Vice President (Social Lead)

"Hot off the heels of an exciting first year, Matthew’s decision to take on the role of Vice President (Social Lead) comes after reaping the merits of all that DULS has had to offer, and to help provide this same experience to all new and current students. Matthew combines his interest in law with his passion for foreign languages through studying French as part of his degree and demonstrates his high energy and enthusiasm to succeed through being an active member of the university’s boat club, of which he also holds a committee position. With his vibrant and confident attitude, Matthew aims to make the next year of DULS its most successful yet! "

Sarah Campbell

Vice President (Fundraising Lead)

"Going into the role as Vice President of Fundraising for DULS, Sarah hopes to make a great contribution to the society as a whole. She is keen to work closely with the social team to provide new ways to raise money for DULS. Further, she wishes to help improve our links with both law firms and non-law companies. In the first two years of her studies, she participated in mooting competitions which helped to develop both her communication and organisational skills. As well as her studies, she have keen interests in sport such as squash and sailing. "

Lauren Galloway

Secretary

"In her first year, Lauren has ensured to work hard to balance her studies, social life and other commitments as well as competing in mooting competitions. Stepping into the role of secretary, Lauren hopes to put her time-management skills and experiences gained at a local law firm to use. This opportunity of working within a criminal law firm has only allowed Lauren to gain teamwork, communicative and organisational skills. "

Shannon McInnes

Social Media Convener

"Shannon has enjoyed how close knit everyone is in the smaller city of Dundee compared to her home in Glasgow. After a successful second year both academically and socially, Shannon decided to take on the role of social media convener, hoping to make a valuable contribution in the already successful society. Shannon balances her work life and her university commitments well, a skill she will carry forward and put to good use over the following year to ensure the society is showcased in the best possible way!"

Shannon Wright-Davies

Careers Assistant

"With the same enthusiasm she has shown in her first two years of university, Shannon looks forward to being a member of the committee. Balancing a part-time job, volunteering and university work has allowed her to develop and gain the skills required for this role such as organizational skills and time management. Still undecided which career path she would like to follow herself, she is keen to explore as many options as possible and make these available to all DULS members and students. Shannon looks forward to working closely with the other members of the committee to make this DULS’ most successful year yet. "

Ruth Burns

Social Assistant

"Ruth joins Dundee university's law committee after an incredible first year, taking all the university has to offer. As social assistant, she hopes to work alongside social VP in creating and organising memorable events for all students to participate in and enjoy. Eager to fulfil her role, she hopes her approachable and enthusiastic attitude will ensure all students makes the most out of their society and cement a continuation of the committee's success."

Tiarnan Cahill

External Trips Coordinator

"Tiarnan first became interested in law when he saw my uncle, a barrister, in action in court. Since then, he has ended up here in sunny Dundee, now a second-year law student. Over the last year he has participated in many of the law societies events and really enjoyed himself, not least the Sunday league team. As someone who has been into sports and music, in particular team sports such as his native GAA, he has the right communication skills to become a positive force in his role as external trips convener. He looks forward to seeing you all this coming year. "
