The Haldane Society congratulates Kate Markus, QC, on her appointment as an Upper Tribunal Judge and notes her resignation as Vice-President of the Society. Kate was Chair of the Haldane Society in the early 1990s. Kate led the Haldane Society delegations to the historic IADL Congress in Cape Town in 1996 and also led a delegation to El Salvador and Guatamala at the end of El Salvador's civil war. She took part in a number of other international delegations.
Kate's commitment and energy resulted in the Society's profile raised generally and particularly amongst legal aid practitioners. She was simultaneously chair of the Law Centres Federation.
Kate has been a Honorary Vice-President of the Society since 2010. We wish her all the best as a Judge.
