Meet the Team

Brian Stuart

President

"After working as Social Media Convenor on the committee last year, Brian is primed to take on the role of President. Brian balances leading the committee with his academic studies and his love of sport, particularly golf. His sociable character, teamed with his excitement for the upcoming year, makes him perfect for this role. His desire to progress the society and need to provide a society for law students by students, makes a strong combination. "

Kirsten Paterson

Vice President (Careers Lead)

"After working as careers assistant for a year, Kirsten has filled the role made for her. The understanding of career opportunities combined with a passion to provide our members with information to aid their futures makes a formidable combination. After a summer of interning Kirsten comes back to DULS raring to go. Her enthusiastic outlook allows for her to excel this year. Keep you eyes peeled for some excellent initiatives designed to bring you closer to your future."

Reece Stewart

Vice President (Social Lead)

"Reece’s interest in law was first sparked in primary six where he played a lawyer in a mock trial at school . This interest turned into something real when he was accepted into a law course at his hometown university. Now in his third year, Reece has become a well known figure within the law school due to his larger than life personality and sociable reputation. Not one for a quiet lifestyle, Reece balances his busy social schedule with two part time jobs and of course his university degree. "

Euan Arnott

Vice President (Fundraising Lead)

"Hailing from Edinburgh, Euan has really taken to life in Dundee, enjoying the degree and the city greatly. When he’s not playing squash or football, Euan spends his time securing funds for the society through a variety of events and sponsorships. With his innovative ideas and his attention to detail, Euan is the perfect candidate for this role, and is eager to begin his tenure with DULS."

Megan Anderson

Secretary

"Becoming secretary, Megan has gained a multitude of experience from her internship with a renowned law firm as well as working with an in-house lawyer drafting contracts for the two previous summers. These two ventures have led her to gain valuable traits such as teamwork, organisational and communicative skills. She also has a wide range experience when it comes to mooting, where she has competed in the finals of internal competitions for past two years, and comped in the prestigious Alexander Stone moot. "

Duncan Shaw

Treasurer

"Stepping into the role of treasure for the coming year, Duncan looks forward to making a valuable contribution to the society. Securing placements in both the Scottish Parliament and the Lord President's office, Duncan has gained organisational and communication skills which he hopes to utilise on his time within the committee. Whilst balancing his studies, Duncan also has a keen interest in rugby and basketball."

Hannah McGurk

Social Media Convener

"Gaining a summer placement with the Central Legal Office and Procurator Fiscals has given Hannah great communication and organisational skills combined with a significant amount of legal experience. With these skills at hand, it provides Hannah with a fantastic opportunity to excel in the Social Media Role. She balances her life well, between an active social life and her interest in music, where her signing has taken her to venues such as Hampden, SECC and Bellahouston park. "

Daniel Breerton

Careers Assistant

"Daniel has come to university and taken everything in his stride. After taking on first year and being impressed with how close knit everyone was, he decided to become a valuable member of the law society as the careers assistant. He has a strong enthusiasm for his role and juggling a part time job with his degree has given him many great skills making him ideal for the role. "

Tom McMurtrie

Social Assistant

"Tom enjoys Dundee because it is Scotland's sunniest city and as its quite a small University you tend to get to know a lot of people on campus. He worked with kids, and learnt all about being a leader and improving self confidence. Tom can bring a lot of fun to the role of social assistant. His aim is to allow everyone who is working hard to relax and have fun at the events provided. Hopefully he shall be able to create some memorable events."

Ailie Clapperton

External Trips Coordinator

"Ailie joins the committee this year off the back of a hugely successful summer interning with internationally renowned law firm, HBJ Gateley. This experience has well equipped her for assuming the role of External Events. Ailie balances her studies with active participation in sports - namely the DULHC, of which she is Club Captain. These experiences demonstrate her careful time-management and organisational skills which will undoubtedly be put to good use this year. Ailie also looks forward to combining her interest in sports with external trips for DULS members, such as Varsity and Parliamentary visits. "
