The Treaty of Lisbon 2007 as it came into force in 2009;
The Scotland Act 2012;
The Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007;
The Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010;
The Legal Services (Scotland) Act 2010;
Reference is also made to further possible reforms to the system in the future resulting from the Gill Review of Civil Justice.
This text is an invaluable introduction for students and anyone with an interest in the Scottish legal system.
