Elish Angiolini and Frank Mulholland to be admitted to the Faculty of Advocates

On 13 October 2008 Richard Keen QC, the Dean of the Faculty of Advocates, announced the prospective admission to membership of the Faculty of Elish Angiolini QC, the Lord Advocate and Frank Mulholland QC, the Solicitor General.

It is understood that the admission ceremony will take place on 7 November.  A spokesperson for the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service said:  "Mrs Angiolini and Mr Mulholland are honoured to have been invited to apply to join the Faculty of Advocates, which is highly respected for its central role in delivering independent legal services in Scotland.” 

There had been no announcement of the Dean’s invitation on the Faculty of Advocates website as at 21 October 2008, although there is the autumn edition of a Faculty newsletter, which includes a courtroom photograph – indeed, a judicial eye-view – of a calling ceremony in the court of Lord Mackay of Drumadoon.
