Staff Nurse Is Top Legal Eagle

A staff nurse in the Emergency Department at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, who switched to a legal career specialising in medical negligence, has scooped two major awards. Sarah Fairley, who worked full time for NHS Forth Valley between 2010 and 2017 and still undertakes bank shifts, graduated earlier this year with a law degree from the University of Strathclyde.

She is pictured at a recent ceremony in the University’s Barony Hall in Glasgow receiving awards for Top Graduate LLB Student and Best Student in Commercial Law. They were presented by Lord Clark, Court of Session and High Court of Judiciary Judge.

Sarah is now undertaking the Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at the University of Edinburgh and, from September 2020, will be working as a trainee solicitor with Levy and McRae in Glasgow.
