Julie Harris

Julie heads up our market-leading, award-winning personal injury team. She has specialised in pursuing personal injury cases since 1995 and was drawn to this area of the law as it is complex, interesting work and involves the challenge of acting for an individual taking on a large institution, usually an employer or an insurance company. As well as directing the team, Julie runs many litigated cases in both The Court of Session and The All-Scotland Sheriff Personal Injury Court.

Julie enjoys participating in training of other solicitors and external referrers such as the firm’s trade union clients. She is also a mentor on The Law Society of Scotland’s Lawscot Foundation Programme, which supports academically talented students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Representative Experience

Julie has pursued many high value complex cases involving employers’ liability, road accidents, clinical negligence and historical abuse. She is regularly referred personal injury cases by other less specialist solicitors around the country via the firm’s Injury Compensation Alliance.

She has run countless personal injury Court actions and has regularly appeared in The All-Scotland Sheriff Personal Injury Court. As Solicitor Advocate, Julie is able to appear in Scotland’s highest Civil Courts.

Education

Julie has an LLB Honours Degree and Diploma in Legal Practice from The University of Strathclyde and is a Notary Public.

Admissions, Memberships and Accreditations

She was admitted by The Law Society in 1995 and is accredited by The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers as a Senior Litigator and by The Law Society of Scotland as a Personal Injury specialist.

Outside Work

Outside of work, Julie loves reading, running, good food and wine, occasional sea swims and spending time with her children and big, extended family. Her favourite film is The Graduate – “the closing scene on the bus never fails to make me smile”.
