Vicki Straiton



Vicki studied at Glasgow University and joined Clan Childlaw as a newly qualified lawyer in 2010. Since then she has represented many children and young people, with a particular interest in the rights of children and young people who experience children’s hearings.

In the autumn of 2022, Vicki has been recognised by the Law Society of Scotland as an accredited specialist in Child Law.

Vicki has also been a Safeguarder in the children’s hearings system since 2014. This means she is asked by children’s hearings and the courts to give assistance, usually by writing a report, to help them make the best decision for a child or young person.

When she’s not working, Vicki enjoys binge watching TV dramas and baking.
