Advocate Usman Tariq named Scotland’s Junior of the Year at Legal 500 Awards
Advocate Usman Tariq has been named the Scottish bar’s Junior of the Year at the Legal 500 UK Awards.
Mr Tariq said: “I joined the Scottish bar at 25 years old, fresh from my traineeship, younger than all of my colleagues and with less experience. I was unsure about how my career at the bar would turn out.
“Looking back now at eight years called, I am delighted with how my career is progressing but, more importantly, I am appreciative of the solicitors that took a chance on instructing me when there were many better choices, I am thankful to my clerks at Ampersand Advocates who pushed me and have always looked out for me, and I am grateful for the many colleagues at Faculty of Advocates who have been a source of advice and encouragement over these years. Thank you!
“My advice to all young lawyers and law students is this: work hard, be passionate about your work, approach every instruction with the care and attention of your first and with that positive attitude, you can achieve your goals!”
