Success Story: Lord Advocate Elish Angiolini: "I'm a Mum First, a Lawyer Second"

Scottishflag Elish Angiolini was recently appointed to serve as the Lord Advocate, Scotland's top law officer - she is the first woman in more than 500 years to hold the job - a "cause for celebration," she says. But in a recent interview, she made clear that her first and most important job is to be a mum to her two kids - ages nine and six.  As Angiolini elaborated, "Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings, Disney, are the things I do outside work because I can do them with my children. They are the most important thing in my life."

We applaud Angiolini's candor about her priorities. Read the full story behind her appointment here in the Sunday Mail.
