Baroness Scotland served as the UK government’s attorney general from 2007 until to May 2010 and was the first woman to hold that position. She was also the first black woman and at 35 the youngest lawyer to be appointed a Queen’s Counsel.  Currently a full time lawyer in the UK after being shadow AG until 2011, she is an expert in constitutional law, anti-corruption and human rights, among other issues.

From 1999 – 2001 she was the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, where she was responsible for the Overseas Territories.

The lecture is scheduled for the evening of Tuesday 30 July at 6-30pm at the college’s Sir Vassel Johnson Hall.

    Is this the same Baroness Scotland who pens the law on Immigration and yet is found with a domestic maid who is working illegally? She should have lost her job then as AG of the UK and if it were not for the insidious intervention of Tony Blair, we would not be putting up with her in the Cayman Islands.

    Yes, probably the same person. This is just the kind of person we need to help in the erosion of the rule of law.

    I hope the press can step up to the plate on this one?
