Final appellate jurisdiction in the Scottish legal system: the end of the anomaly?

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    Comments on the models proposed in the 2010 Scottish Government report entitled "Final Appellate Jurisdiction in the Scottish Legal System" for the structure of the appeals system in Scotland in the light of the establishment of the UK Supreme Court, including: (1) a fully autonomous appellate court system; (2) an integrated criminal and civil appeals system with devolution issues dealt with by the Supreme Court; (3) the status quo; (4) a Scottish chamber of the Supreme Court; (5) the Supreme Court as an equivalent to the European Court of Justice; or (6) a quasi-federal Supreme Court which would hear civil or criminal appeals from Scotland on matters of "common interest". © 2011 Sweet & Maxwell
