In this final episode of the Hey Legal quiz, The Hon Lady Scott ( Maggie Scott QC) joins Edith Forrest, Advocate through 20 questions that provide an insight into her career and life beyond the law.

Lady Scott was called to the bar in Scotland (the Faculty of Advocates) in 1991. She took silk (became a Queen’s Counsel) in 2002.

She has acted as lead counsel in a number of high-profile appeal cases such as the Lockerbie bombing and the Glasgow Ice Cream Wars, in which she defended Abdelbaset al-Megrahi and Thomas “TC” Campbell, respectively.

She was also successful in the appeal case of Kim Galbraith, whose murder conviction for shooting her policeman husband was reduced to diminished responsibility.
