Edinburgh Private Law Blog launched

Tue 8 October 2019

Old College Quad

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Edinburgh Private Law Blog, picking up the baton from the Scots Law News Blog, the European Private Law Blog and the Obligations Law Blog.

The Edinburgh Private Law Blog will host a range of material including reports on seminars and conferences, précis of articles, and comments on recent cases and legislative material. Our aim is to reflect the research culture of the law school, to foster debate on all aspects of private law and to present opportunities to a range of voices. Contemporary Scots law will be a core area of focus, but the blog will reflect Edinburgh’s tradition of comparative and historical approaches to the study of private law.

We welcome guest contributions, so if you would like to write an entry, please get in touch by emailing
