Prout de jure is a blog dedicated to UK legal political and legal matters. It aims to bring quality analysis and comment on a wide range of matters which have serious and far reaching consequences for the people of the UK.
I am currently a Solicitor in Glasgow and hold a currenr practising certificate issued by the Law Society of Scotland. I have obtained a Bachelor of Laws degree (with honours) from the University of Stirling and a Diploma in Professional Legal Practice and a Master of Laws degree, both from the University of Strathclyde.
My honours dissertation was titled ‘To Codify or not to Codify? An exploration of codification of the criminal law and a consideration of whether Scotland should adopt a criminal code.’ While my Masters dissertation considered the use by the Information Commissioner’s of their power to issue Monetary Penalty Notices for breaches of the Data Protection Act; with a view to considering the incidents in which Data Controllers could expect a Monetary Penalty Notice as possessed to other forms of regulatory penalty.
This blog is written for recreational purposes as a outlet for my thoughts and views on various political and legal topics. Nothing written on this blog should be relied upon as legal advice and should not be used as a replacement for proper legal advice tailored to your specific circumstances.
Prout de jure
Prout de jure is a general proof of facts and circumstances according to law. It appeared to be a fitting title for the blog given the purpose that it exists for.
