Welcome to Scots Law News in its new blog format!

Scots Law News has its origins in the days before the blog was invented, almost before the Internet was invented, in fact.  But the idea of a running commentary on items of interest around Scots law was obviously one just waiting for blog technology to come along.  Scots Law News is very grateful to Nick Dyson, Edinburgh Law School computing support officer, for undertaking the conversion of all 800 of the preceding entries, and at the same time ensuring the retention of our URL for the benefit of our faithful readers.  Being a blog should enable us to interact a little more openly with our readers, and we look forward to comments and contributions.

The relaunch provides an opportunity also to welcome Scott Wortley of the Edinburgh Law School to the editorial team.  He has in fact held this position since late 2007, and it is good to be able to acknowledge his sterling contributions in their proper place on our masthead.
