Feb Issue of Scots Law Update Now Live

The February issue of Scots Law Update is now available for subscribers of Scots Law.

Scots Law Update is a monthly update of Scots law written exclusively for subscribers of the Bloomsbury Professional Scottish Law Service. Each update contains commentary on relevant new cases, legislation and reports. The updates are set out with links to the related content in our online services.

The February issue is entitled ‘Views of a Child in Section 11 Order Cases’ written by Andrew Stevenson SSC (Solicitor at Waddell and Mackintosh)

It features a writ from the new edition of Style Writs for the Sheriff Court in which a car salesman was seeking contact to his daughter. This scenario was inspired by a real case brought by an unreliable father who, for various reasons, mainly work related, was incapable of sticking to any contact structure thereby offering his daughter little other than disappointment and disillusionment. The style reflects the current requirements in the Ordinary Cause Rules 1993 (‘The Rules’) as to the papers that should be served on a child who is the subject of an application for an order, including an order for contact, under the Children (Scotland) Act 1995.
