Supreme Court experts announced
The Scottish Government's Expert Group to consider the jurisdiction of the UK Supreme Court in criminal matters will consist of Lord McCluskey, Sir Gerald Gordon QC, Sheriff Charles Stoddart and Professor Neil Walker.
It is of course a distinguished group but, Scots Law News feels bound to add, not one in the first flush of youth, and also one entirely masculine. Others will feel worried by an excessive quotient of Edinburgh Law School associations, but that is something on which your editor cannot possibly comment. What difference any of this will make to their advice is anyone's guess.
