Ken Scott, Corporate Secretary
Ken Scott is a University of Colorado-Boulder and Harvard Law School honors graduate and international human rights lawyer. After serving 12 years as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Justice Department and Chief of Complex Prosecutions, Ken and his wife Candy and two sons moved to The Hague, Netherlands, where he was a senior war crimes prosecutor for 14 years. Ken led large groups of international lawyers, investigators, military analysts, language assistants and others in large, complex investigations and prosecutions, successfully litigating major war crimes cases in multiple trials and proceedings involving thirteen prominent war criminals, including a prime minister, defense minister, two chiefs of the General Staff, the head of the military police, a regional governor, other senior military commanders and a regional warlord. For this work, Ken was awarded the Mostar Peace Prize (with previous recipients including Nelson Mandela, Vaclav Havel and Jacques Chirac) and was a Wasserstein Fellow at Harvard Law School.
Since returning to Denver some years ago, Ken has carried on a wide-ranging international human rights practice, also prosecuting at the Special Tribunal for Lebanon. Ken has been part of the Clan Scott Society for many years, previously serving as the Colorado Commissioner, International Commissioner and Corporate Secretary, and was an organizer of the successful 2009 Scott Gathering at Bowhill and in the Borders, Scotland.
