The Scotland Act 1998 and Human Rights Act 1988 have been the catalyst for enormous upheaval in the world of the Scottish lawyer. Constitutional and political change has produced a fundamental challenge to the ideas and institutions of Scots Law.

The State of Scots Law seeks to stimulate important and necessary public discussion. Written by leading academics from Scotland's universities, their contributions are likely to become the standard point of reference in this debate.""
