The Law Society of Scotland has joined the widespread show of support for human rights solicitor Aamer Anwar, following a series of abusive messages in response to his eye witness account of last week’s terror attack in Barcelona.

Lorna Jack, Chief Executive of the Law Society of Scotland said, “In spite of the tirade of abuse which Aamer has been subjected to in the wake of last week’s traumatic events, he has shown characteristic grit and integrity.

“On behalf the Society, I would like to add to the heartening and widespread show of support for him in speaking up for tolerance and decency.”

Aamer Anwar has been a Law Society of Scotland member and solicitor for over fifteen years.  His work as a human rights lawyer has earned him the titles of Solicitor of the Year in the Herald’s Law Awards of Scotland 2016, and Lawyer of the Year Legal Awards of Scotland in 2017.
