Morton Fraser has been appointed to the Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges (APUC) Legal Services Framework Agreement.

Morton Fraser is one of six law firms named in the new framework agreement which provides legal services to Scottish universities, colleges and associate members. The appointment is made on an initial basis of two years, with two possible extensions of one year. The appointment was made following a call for tenders.

Morton Fraser’s public sector team will provide legal advice in all areas of work, including business affairs, property and estates, employment and human resources matters, charity and international law. The APUC legal framework enables Scottish universities and colleges to obtain legal advice, training and added value.

Jenny Dickson, President and Public Sector Team Leader at Morton Fraser, will be the executive lead for the APUC contract. She said, “We are delighted to be appointed to the APUC Legal Services Framework Agreement, marking a significant expansion of our training practice within the firm.

“The team really looks forward to working with Scotland’s world-class colleges and universities on a diverse and interesting range of issues, especially as many of our staff are closely involved in supporting the Third Sector as speakers, tutors and mentors, and helping to expand access to further and higher education.
