(768)  NEW LYON  


Scots Law News was once again delighted to learn of the judicial promotion of an Edinburgh Law School colleague when it was at last announced, on 7 March 2008, that David Sellar had been appointed Lord Lyon King of Arms in succession to Robin Blair, who resigned late last year.  David was previously Bute Pursuivant, one of the Lyon Court heralds.  For more details, see http://www.scotland.gov.uk/News/Releases/2008/03/07101053 and Lyon’s own website, http://www.lyon-court.com/.  A rather intriguing URL, incidentally; why a .com rather than a .gov.uk domain name?
