Sorry for the recent absence again. This has been for a number of reasons. The main one being my schedule has been so full recently that I’ve been unable to get back on and blog. Secondly, I have been having a period of personal reflection following my previous blog entry!
Tomorrow I am giving a talk at the organisation where I volunteer entitled “Legal Issues for Children and Young People”. I am really looking forward to it! This talk is aimed at educating those who I work alongside of on the rights and obligations under the law for children and young people (the group that we, as an organisation, deal with). The talk crosses all areas of the Law including Criminal, Family and Contract. I gave the same talk just over a year ago and it was a great success. Hopefully, this year it will just be as big a success and people will leave enlightened. Most of the questions that people have relate to Criminal and Family Law (which has to be one of the most confusing of areas of law!). The thing which shocked most people last year was when I started talking about Rape in Scotland, as the law in Scotland is very backward when it comes to rape (as I’ve explained here before)
Anyway, must go as I’m really busy and will get back soon.
