Scottish Human Rights Law Group formed

Published by under Events,Scots law

The nascent Scottish Human Rights Law Group is intended to bring together Scots lawyers and those working in and around the law in Scotland with an interest in human rights issues. Its website, in the course of development, is ambitiously intended to provide a database of law reports, articles, textbook updates, and other items, categorised by area of law and by Convention article; there will be ‘contributing editors’ for particular sections, each responsible for updating his or her assigned area of the law and in a position to receive comments, submissions, and suggestions for updating from other parties/members of the group. The proposed categorisations, which are flexible, can be seen by browsing its sidebar. Continue Reading »

FLaG: debate on 22 September on child contact issues

Published by under Events,Scots law

Scots Law has no effective means of dealing with mothers who will not allow contact‘ was the subject of the debate at the Murray Stable’s launch of its Family Law Group (‘FLaG’) on 22 September. I have to say I was – although I spoke against it- not surprised at the thumping majority which voted in favour of the motion, in a vote which was particularly striking as this highly successful event attracted almost every significant practitioner in family law in Edinburgh together with family lawyers from all over Scotland.

There’s a description of the debate on the Murray Stable newspage, and also a handout with notes of cases and other materials. Unfortunately the handout’s hyperlinks don’t work, so I give its final part here with working links. Continue Reading »

I don’t normally blog non-legal events, but this Saturday both Parliament House, and the Advocates Library (photos here) (plan in 1852 here; more or less present-day here), will be open as part of Doors Open Day between 10 and 4. Edinburgh Sheriff Court will be open between 9.30 and 4.30.

Home page for Doors Open Day here, with brochure.

Nicely set-out Google map of Edinburgh showing all attractions here; the ‘Get Directions’ feature now allows you to work out how long it will take to walk between any two or more of them.
