The Lord Chief Justice of Northern Ireland, Sir Declan Morgan, will deliver this year’s Jean Clark Memorial Lecture at Dundee University in Scotland.

Sir Declan’s lecture on Thursday evening will ask why lawyers matter, discussing the importance of the legal system and some of the challenges faced by lawyers in the modern day.

Sir Declan will also reflect on his own career giving his insights into how, through everyday practice, lawyers can uphold democratic values in an ever changing society.

The lecture starts at 6pm in the Dalhousie Building. Attendance is free but registration is required on the Dundee University website. The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception.

Each year a lecture is held in memory of Jean Clark, a solicitor and the last surviving member of the Clark Family who traded as The Saxone Shoe Company. She established and funded her own charity – The Clark Foundation for Legal Education.

The foundation makes grants annually for undergraduates, graduates and lawyers to further their legal education. The grants are awarded purely on the merit of the application or the hardship of the applicant.
