It’s the awards season once more, with red carpets, flash photography and emotions on show in abundance.  Although it doesn’t seem that long since the 2007 awards (see No 683), the Scottish Legal Awards for 2008 were announced on 22 February 2008.  Here is the list: http://www.thescottishlegalawards.com/ .  The eye-catchers for Scots Law News were a well-merited lifetime achievement award for Lady Cosgrove, the first (but now retired) female judge in the Court of Session and High Court of Justiciary (see Nos 211, 551), and the Lightershade Legal Website of the Year going to Govan Law Centre for Bank Charges (see http://www.govanlc.com/bankcharges.html, as well as our own Nos 675 and 745, and note that the Centre hasn’t caught up with the latest exciting developments reported in the latter place!).
