The career of one of the Edinburgh Law School’s most popular figures, Professor George Gretton, is to be celebrated in a book to be published later this year.
The book is to be a collection of essays by academic colleagues of Professor Gretton from home and abroad, as well as from the judiciary and legal profession.
It is being edited by three of his former doctoral students: Dr Andrew Steven, Senior Lecturer in the Edinburgh Law School and Scottish Law Commissioner; Dr Ross Anderson, Advocate and Dr John MacLeod, Lecturer in Law at the University of Glasgow.
The book will be published by Avizandum Publishing in December 2017 and subscription to it is now being invited.
Professor Gretton retired in 2016 after 35 years at Edinburgh Law School, during which time he held the Lord President Reid Professor of Law from 1994 to his retirement; served as Scottish Law Commissioner from 2006 to 2011; published prolifically in the fields of commercial law, conveyancing, property law, and trusts and succession law; established the annual Conveyancing Roadshow with Professor Kenneth Reid, which is now in its 26th year; and influenced the learning and careers of many a student and law professional.
