In addition to the work highlighted below, we also submitted evidence on the Burial and Cremation (Scotland) Bill and the Bankruptcy (Scotland) Bill.  We also submitted stage 1 briefing on the Land Reform (Scotland) Bill and the charity law sub-committee responded to an OSCR consultation on its draft Charity Trustee Guidance.  Full information on all of these and more on our website.

Impact of the EU Referendum

Michael Clancy, Director of Law Reform, gave evidence to the Scottish Parliament’s  European and External Relations Committee on 17 December about the impact of the EU referendum on Scotland. As a Society we are remaining neutral on the question as to whether the UK should remain in or leave the EU but we are examining the potential implications from the legal perspective.
