Autumn

Some significant new editions so far this year are:

Gloag and Henderson: The Law of Scotland 14th ed First published in 1927 Gloag and Henderson is quite simply THE work of reference on the law of Scotland. It is unique in providing the complete Scots private law library in one volume, with no other single legal title in Scotland offering the same kind of coverage.

In September Land and Property Development In Scotland: Law and Practice was published. Anyone embarking on property development transactions needs to be aware of very difficult and dangerous issues involving options, property contracts, overage (top-up payments) and clawback (payment triggered by change of use etc.) and aspects of planning law.

 Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005 In the ten years since the author’s’ first edition of their annotated version of The Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005, there has been extensive change in the area of charity law in Scotland. The Act has been amended significantly and the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has filled out the bare bones of the legislation with a formidable corpus of decisions and guidance. This title was published in August.

Due now in November is Children's Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 (Greens Annotated Acts) and is completely up-to-date, including the substantial amendments effected by the Children's Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 (Modification of Primary Legislation) Order 2013 and Part 16 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.
