Welcome to Wright, Johnston & Mackenzie’s January audio newsletter.
Coming up this month we hear about a new Scottish Government consultation that could lead to changes in what we’re allowed to build and use land for and we look at the impact of recent changes to bankruptcy laws here in Scotland. There’s a special feature on the Family Law department here at WJM, plus we look at the Scottish Whisky Association who have been given permission to go to the UK’s highest court with an appeal against a minimum price for alcohol here in ScotlandDownload MP3
In December there was another development in a five year case between the Scottish Whisky Association and the Scottish Government, with the Court of Session in Edinburgh giving permission for the SWA to take their appeal against a minimum price for alcohol in Scotland to the UK Supreme Court. WJM’s Colin Millar tell us more about the case.

Scotland has made some huge changes in recent years to the way the law interacts with the family unit with civil partnerships and same sex marriage legislation helping to make us one of the more tolerant societies in the world. But regardless of how a family is constituted, sometimes relationships break down and at that point you may need a family lawyer to help. Here at WJM that probably means you’ll end up speaking with Tom Quail.

The Scottish Government is calling for all interested parties to take part in a consultation looking at bringing in changes to Scotland’s planning system. Here at WJM we can help in lots of different ways with regards to planning legislation. Nicola Martin explains more, including why we have planning laws in Scotland.

On 30th November 2016 the Bankruptcy Scotland Act came into force. This is a consolidation bill which as the name suggests consolidates various different pieces of legislation under one single piece of legislation. WJM’s Steven Docherty talks more about this and explains what exactly bankruptcy is and how the process works.
