About

I am currently a  Solicitor in Glasgow and hold a current practicing 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.

Legal Advice

This blog is written for recreational purposes as a outlet for my thoughts and views on various 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.
