Scots Law Tales brings a number of leading cases from the Scottish courts to life. The publication gathers together a collection of the stories behind some of the most memorable cases from the last hundred years; including the huge miscarriage of justice perpetrated against Oscar Slater, the Lockerbie trial, St Ninian's Treasure in Shetland to allegations of ritual child abuse in Orkney.

It explores the personalities involved, the events leading up to the case, what the court decided and why, and the role that the case played in the development of its area of law. Scots Law Tales presents both the human and the legal faces of these important Scottish cases in an accessible and readable format.
