Farewell to Heather Kemmett

2017 promises to be another successful year in the University of Strathclyde Law Clinic, but sadly it begins with us bidding Heather Kemmett, one of the Law Clinic’s supervisors, a “see you later”.

Heather first joined the Clinic as a student advisor when she was studying at Strathclyde. After graduation Heather began working at Law At Work specialising in employment law disputes. She rejoined the Clinic in 2015 as a supervisor splitting her time between the Clinic and Law At Work and has overseen over a vast number of cases as well as ensuring the smooth running of a number of the Law Clinic’s projects. She leaves us to return to her full time position at Law At Work.

We are indebted to Heather for the fantastic atmosphere she created in the Hub, and for the support she offered the students she worked with. Her upbeat aptitude never failed to give a student advisor confidence in themselves or in the case at hand. We are very sad to see her leave, but we are sure that she will be no stranger.

Before leaving Heather said:

“I will miss the Law Clinic and you all very much indeed. I am sure the Law Clinic will continue to go from strength to strength thanks to the hard work that each and every one of you contributes to this fantastic organisation.”

Clinic Director Professor Donald Nicolson remarked:

“Working with Heather has been a brilliant experience. She is an example of all that the Clinic stands for, and her selfless dedication to the pro bono cause has long outlasted her time as a student with us. Even before joining as a supervisor, she was one of the most reliable volunteers at our IAC sessions, and as a supervisor she brought a range of improvements to the way we operate. Thank you, Heather.”
