The career path of recent Scottish law officers

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The Executive's recent proposals on judicial independence include proposals in relation to judicial appointments.

Mr White considers how, since then, Scottish law officers have fared in elevation to the bench.
